Setting Dataset Scope for Filters

To enable Dataset filter scope, you must set the Dataset Scope option.

We used the sample dataset US State Population.

Follow these steps to set dataset scope in a dashboard:

  1. Open an existing or new app in Edit mode.
  2. Switch to the Filters tab.
  3. Under the Filters tab, create an application control: either a new parameter, or a filter widget based on an existing column of the dataset.

    We created a filter widget based on the dimension state.

    Making a filter widget in Dashboard

    The filter widget appears at the top of the dashboard.

  4. Hover over the top right corner of the new state filter widget, and click the (gear) icon to configure the filter.

  5. In the Settings modal window, click the Scope tab.
  6. Under the Scope tab, select Send parameters with dataset scope, and click Apply.
