Adding a Filter

You can create a filter on any field from the data set associated with the currently selected visual. If you want to create a filter for a different data set, choose a visual that uses that data set. When you create a filter, it applies by default to just the currently selected visual. You can apply the filter to additional visual that use that data set after you create it.

Once you apply a filter to a visual, a filter icon appears on the visual so you can identify at a glance that the data is filtered.

You can create filters on text (string data type), numeric (int or decimal data types) and date fields. Depending on the data type of the field you choose, you are offered different filtering options, as described in the following topics.
