Say I have 2 filters for example “suburb” and “street name” – the first filter is suburb and the second is street name with street name set to show only relevant values. The selection of a suburb from the first filter delimits the available streets to choose from in the second filter. If the user selects a suburb from filter 1 and a street from the second filter all is fine but if they then change the Suburb the visualisation goes blank as the selected street is not in the newly selected suburb.

 

It would be good to be able to control this behaviour so when filter 1 is changed it defaults to a valid value in the second filter, not to blank.

 

This is important where "All values" is not viable due to the list length in the subcategory.
