Selective Liveboard filters

The new Liveboard experience contains multiple new features and feature enhancements. It is on by default, and users can turn it on or off individually from the Experience manager panel in their profile. If you use the classic Liveboard experience in your environment, your experience may be different from the one described in this article.

When you create or view a Liveboard, you may want to filter the visualizations on the Liveboard, to only see data that is relevant to your role, for example. However, you may not want a filter to apply to every visualization or tab in the Liveboard. For example, the head of sales in North America may want to filter most visualizations to only contain data about sales in North America, but may want to compare her sales to an unfiltered global quarterly sales metric.

You can apply Liveboard filters to specific visualizations or tabs from the Filters modal.

To learn more about Liveboard filters, refer to Liveboard filters and Linked Liveboard filters.
