Dashboard Designer: Interactive Filters

Deprecated Documentation

This document applies to pre-v2019.2 of the application. For current Dashboard documentation, refer to the v2019.2+ section.

Interactive filters are filters that appear as tiles directly on the Dashboard itself. Filter tiles have several different styles to choose between, and can resize and scale just like any other tile. Filters can apply to as many or as few reports as needed.


You can choose between four styles of filters and two orientations:

  • Single Choice A drop down menu with all possible filter values. Users can choose one value.
  • Multiple Choice A check list with all possible filter values. Users can choose multiple values.
  • Single Slider – Users can choose one value by sliding a point along a scale.
  • Range Slider – Users can choose multiple values between two points on a scale.

You may also select whether the filter values are oriented horizontally or vertically.


Select which reports the filter applies to. Only reports that include the filter data field are valid.


Select which data field the filter applies to. The filter is automatically populated with values from the data field. You can select which value or values are selected by default when the Dashboard is executed. Select Prompt for value to prompt users to enter a value when running the Dashboard.

Text and Format

Choose how the filter value labels are styled and formatted.

Exports (v2018.2+)

Interactive filter tiles will not display in exported Dashboards, which are exported in the form of Chained Reports. Though the tiles themselves will not display, the default values set for the filters will apply to their corresponding reports and visualizations in the exported file.
