Editing a Filter

You can edit a filter by enabling or disabling the filter or changing the filter criteria. You can also edit a filter by 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.

Enabling or Disabling a Filter

You can use the filter menu to enable or disable a filter. When you create a filter, it is enabled by default.

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

  2. On the Applied filters pane, use the check box to enable or disable the filter. A disabled filter is grayed out.

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 that you want to modify. Doing this displays the filter details.

  3. Change the settings that you want to modify.

  4. 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.

  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 All visuals, Some visuals or Only this visual.
