Changing Number of Options in Search Output of Dashboard Filters

In a dashboard filter, you can change the maximum number of options that appear during search. This limits the display of options for datasets with a very large variability.

To change the number of items that are displayed when you search for options in the filter, follow these steps:

  1. In dashboard View mode, hover over a filter that is already added to the dashboard, until the controls appear on the top right.
