What are dashboard filters? 

Dashboard filters enable you to see and dissect data differently by applying filter criteria to all reports on a dashboard from the dashboard screen with the option to save and share the filtered view.

Elements of dashboard filters 


  1. Access the filters panel to apply filters 
  2. Save filters if applicable 
  3. Share the filtered dashboard with other users 
  4. Reset applied filters to the last saved version of the dashboard 
  5. Clear added and inherited filters 
  6. View a summary of filters applied to the dashboard

Apply a filter to a dashboard 

When viewing a dashboard, open the filters panel and select your desired filter criteria. The filters you select will be applied to the reports on the dashboard immediately.

Original dashboard

If you are viewing the original dashboard with edit rights, you have the option to save the filters. Saving dashboard filters will affect the original dashboard and change the view for all users that the dashboard is shared with.


Dashboard instances

If you are not viewing the original dashboard or you do not have edit rights to the dashboard, you can still temporarily change the data displayed on reports still by applying filters. If you'd like to save these filters, you can edit the original dashboard or create a copy of the dashboard using the overflow menu.


Tethr tip: Open a report in a new tab to view the report with unsaved dashboard filters applied.

Remove a filter from a dashboard

Clear filters

To clear dashboard filters, you can either click clear next to the filter selection in the filters panel, or hover over the Filter summary and clear the tiles. You can clear filters that you applied to the dashboard as well as use clear to ignore inherited folder filters.



Tethr tip: Utilize report instance filter settings to configure reports to ignore dashboard filters.

Reset filters

To reset all added dashboard filters and only view saved filters, use the Reset button
