What is a Dynamic Filter?
Dynamic Filters are a great way to empower your Viewers to interact with data. Builders can prepare dynamic dashboards and let Viewers play with data based on pre-set filters (e.g., period of time, user type, device category, etc).
How to use a Dynamic Filter?
To use Dynamic Filters click on the filter icon (A) located in the left-side tool-box on your Page, and update the Dynamic Filter box (B) on the right side-panel (C)
How to create a Dynamic Filter?
Dynamic Filters can be built on Custom Dimensions or from their API directly (to learn about Custom Dimensions please visit this article). Use the right-side panel to choose a Dimension and a sorting metric (1), and the scope of the filter (2). Indeed, your filter can be applicated at a page, or at a widget level.
Finally, switch to the Viewer mode to use your Dynamic Filter!
How to use the multi-selection ?
Multi-selection is enabled in a Dynamic Filter only for Dimension "from API".
Select the needed values in the filter in Viewer mode.
The filter will then apply to all selected values.
