Using Multi-Select Mode

In dashboard filters, you can select multiple options in the dropdown menu.

This option allows the user to select multiple options in the dropdown, then apply all changes to the filter together by clicking outside the table. This collapses the list. For multi-select list, this is a recommended option as it minimizes the query refresh time.

This is the default mode for application controls.

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