Add a filter to a chart

You can add a simple filter from a chart axis while viewing your answer as a chart.

The new filter selection modal is part of the new answer experience. The new answer experience is off by default, but the option to turn it on or off individually is on by default. If you have the classic answer experience on, your user interface and experience may be different from the experience described in this article. You can turn the new answer experience on or off individually from the Experience manager panel in your profile. If that option is not available, contact your administrator.

You can filter a chart in two ways:

  1. Click the legend labels to toggle the values on or off.

  2. Follow the steps shown here to filter on the axis values.

To add a filter from the chart axes:

  1. While viewing your answer as a chart, click the chart axis you want to filter on, and select Filter.

  2. The filter modals for attributes and measures are different. The modal for an attribute looks like this:

    The modal for a measure looks like this:

  3. For an attribute filter, select values to include or exclude. You can also select all or clear all. If there are too many values, you can use the filter search bar to find the ones you want. The filter modal only shows 500 values; if the column you selected has more than 500 values, you must use the filter search bar to find the additional values.

  4. For a measure filter, select Add a condition. Choose an operator, such as is greater than, and enter a number. For example, to see under-performing stores, with sales under 10 million, select is less than or equal to and enter 10 million. To add another filter for that measure, select Add another.

  5. Select Done.
