Using Dashboard Filters

<a name="Filters"></a>

With Dashboard Filters, data on multiple charts within a dashboards can be narrowed down to only show relevant information based on the filter values chosen. If dashboard filters are enabled, it will be displayed as a bar above the charts that can be expanded by clicking to show all filters.

If the values are square checkboxes, multiple values can be chosen for that filter. If they are round radio buttons, only one value can be chosen for that filter. To apply the filter combinations chosen, click the green "Apply" button on the bottom right of the filter bar.

The last combination of filter values that the user chose will be saved for when that user returns to that dashboard. The Reset Filters button next to the Cancel and Apply buttons will reset the values to its default combination. The default filter values are determined by the dashboard owner.
