Editing a Filter

You can edit a filter by enabling or disabling the filter, changing the filter criteria, or changing the filter scope to include or exclude other visuals in the analysis that use the same data set.

You can't change the field a filter applies to. To apply a filter to a different field, create a new filter instead.

  1. On the analysis page, choose Filter on the tool bar.

  2. On the Applied filters pane, choose the selector to the right of the filter name.

  3. On the filter menu, choose Enable filter or Disable filter.

Changing Filter Criteria

Use the following procedure to modify a filter.

  1. On the analysis page, choose Filter on the tool bar.

  2. On the Applied filters pane, choose the filter you want to modify to see the filter details.

  3. Change the comparison type or values.

  4. If the filter type has an Apply button, choose Apply.

Changing Filter Scope

You can use the filter menu to set the scope of a filter to one, several, or all visuals in the analysis that use the data set that filter is based on. By default, a filter applies only to the visual that was selected when the filter was created.

  2. On the Applied filters pane, choose the selector to the right of the filter name.

  3. On the filter menu, choose All visuals for this data set, Some visuals for this data set or Only this visual.
