Viewing Filters

To see the filters for a visual, choose Filter on the on-visual menu, then choose to view filters. The filters that apply to the selected visual display. They appear in the Applied filters pane in order of creation, with the oldest filter on top.

Understanding Filter Icons

Filters in the Applied filters pane display icons to indicate how they are scoped, and whether or not they are enabled.

A disabled filter is grayed out, and its check box is disabled.

The scope that's enabled on a filter indicates how many visualizations that the filter applies to. The scope icon displays to the right of the filter name. The scope icon resembles four boxes in a square. The following options are available:

  • Only this visual – The filter applies to the selected item only.

    Some visuals – The filter applies to visuals with valid column mappings.

    All visuals of this dataset – The filter applies to all the items based on this dataset.

    All applicable visuals – The filter applies to any visuals that have valid column mappings.

The option View field mapping is available on the filter. The mapping establishes matching fields between datasets. To see matching between different datasets, choose a different dataset from the list. For more information, see Mapping Fields.

The scope icons match the ones that display on the filter menu when you are choosing the scope for the filter.

Viewing Filter Details

To see filter details, choose Filter on the left. The filter view retains your last selection. So when you open Filter, you see either the Applied filters or the Edit filter view.

In the Applied filters view, you can choose any filter to view its details. The filters in this list can change depending on the scope of the filter, and which visual you currently have selected.

You can close the Edit filter view by choosing the selector on the right. Doing this resets the Filter view.
