Filter Data in a Visualization

Use filters in a visualization to focus in on the data that you're interested in. For example, you might filter by Month and visualize data only for January, February, and March.

  1. On the Home page, select a workbook, click Actions, select Open, then click Edit.
  2. Select the visualization that you want to add a filter to.
  3. Drag and drop data elements from the Data Panel to the filter bar.

    To use data elements of a dataset as a filter in the visualization of another dataset, join the datasets before using the data elements as filters.

  4. Click the filter to display filtering options to enable you to focus in on the data you want to analyze.
