#FeatureFRIYAY July: export dashboards with filters & more!
Posted On 02/08/2019
Have you been enjoying the sun lately? ☀️ Refresh yourself with a fresh drink or an ice cream, and celebrate #FeatureFRIYAY together with us! Let’s have a look at the new features that were released in July.
Set initialization filters on any chart
Have you used our initialization filters before? When you select a specific value on your filter object, you can ‘pin’ that value as the default dashboard filter.
In other words, every time you open your dashboard, it will automatically have that same filter applied.
Apart from the filter objects, you can now use initialization on other chart types as well! Whenever you select an item on your chart to filter, you can use the toggle to set it as the default filter when opening the dashboard.
For example, let’s say France is your most important market. So, whenever you open your dashboard, you want to see the results for France first. You can do that by selecting France on a map chart & then set it as the initializing filter.
In the dashboard below, you can see how it loads with a filter on the France region. You can simply deselect the area to view your total performance, or select a different region to zoom in.
Export with runtime filters
In terms of filtering, this is not the only news we have to bring. Next to initialization filters, we also introduced a new feature that many of you have been patiently waiting for.
Do you regularly export your dashboards to PDF or PNG? We’ve now made it possible to export your dashboard with runtime filters.
Imagine you’re slice-and-dicing your dashboard, and you encounter an interesting insight. Thanks to our new export functionality, you can now export the filtered version of your dashboard with just one click on the button!
What’s more, initialization filters are also taken into account for your exports. So, if you have a default filter set on a specific month or year, it will automatically be applied in the export. So for scheduled emails, you’ll always export the version with your initialized filters applied.
Do note that when you export or send via email directly, any filters you have applied to the dashboard at that moment will override the initialization filters.
