Scoping a Filter

Overview

In this article we will introduce the concept of scoping — accessed via the Scoping tab — and its ability to provide control over the application of filters to specific charts.


Scoping a Filter

Scoping provides granular control over which charts are subject to an applied filter. To access scoping options, select the Scoping tab.

By default, a filter is applied to all charts in the dashboard, but this can be modified via scoping.

To specify individual charts that can be filtered, select Apply to specific panels.

All charts and tabs within the dashboard are presented in a hierarchal outline format with a checkbox assigned to each one.

To protect a chart from being filtered, simply de-select the appropriate checkbox. In the example below we did the following:

  • De-selected a Tab: Filters will not be applied to all charts within the Explore Trends tab.
  • De-selected Individual Charts: Filters will not be applied to the 'Most Dominant Platforms' and 'Popular Genres Across Platforms' charts.
