Filters narrow the portion of a dataset shown in a visualization by selecting certain elements to display. Filters can be specific to one dashboard page and can change from page to page. Be careful to look at the filters on each page and note any dynamic visualizations that may change with filter selections.
Filters are located on the left side of the page.
In most instances, filters allow users to make one or more selection to dynamically interact with the visuals on a page. There are certain instances when multiple selections are not allowed.
For filters that have a drop down list, select the drop down arrow to see available options.
To clear the filters selections select “clear filters” button at the top of the filters list.
