  2. Click Toggle filters button, the Toggle filters button, on the dashboard heading.
    Dashboards tab - Filters panel
  3. In the Filters panel, click Filter Your Dashboard.
    If other filters are already defined, click Create button, the Create button, at the top of the Filters panel to add a new filter.
  4. In the Add Filter dialog box, configure the settings required for the new filter.

    2. Select a type of filter from the tabs on the left.
      Several types of filters are available, including List, Text, Values, Calendar, Time Frame, and Ranking. The available options depend on whether the selected field is a numeric field, a text field, or a date.
      Add Filter dialog box - Configure filter

      The settings depend on the type of filter that you are creating:
    4. To save the filter and add it to the Starred tab for future use, click Favorite button, the Favorite button.
      You can save the filter with the default name or specify a different name.

      Saved filters are useful when you want to quickly add a new filter with the same field type or to update a filter to reflect the unique parameters defined in the saved filter.

      Your saved filters are visible to recipients when you share the dashboard.

    5. Click OK to filter the data in the dashboard and add the new filter to the Filters panel.
    After a filter is added to the dashboard, it is displayed in the Filters panel and it is automatically turned on. Any changes that you make to the filter are immediately reflected in the dashboard.
    • To reorder the filters in the Filters panel, drag a filter above or below another filter.
    • To rename a filter, click Options button, the Options button, and select Rename. Enter the new filter name in the text box.
