Selectors are filters that affect the results of queries in their widgets. To add a selector to a dashboard, go to Adding selectors to dashboards.
A selector can be linked to a chart or another selector.
For more information, see Link.
A selector works within a single dashboard tab.
When adding a selector to a dashboard, consider how it affects chart filters:
- On a dashboard with no selector, the chart is displayed with an internal set of filters, if any.
- When adding a selector by a certain field to your dashboard, filters added at the chart level are no longer applied to the dashboard's chart.
- If no value is selected in the selector (
No selected values), the chart is displayed without filtering by this field even if there is a filter by this field at the chart level.
To apply double filtering to a field (through a selector and chart filter), create a duplicate of this field in the chart. In this case, you can apply filtering to the duplicate within the chart and add a selector by the original field to the dashboard.
Filters applied to charts using selectors are displayed in the Dashboard filters section. It's available if you open the chart to edit from the dashboard. To clear all the dashboard filters, click
