What

Allow hierarchies in single and multiple values quick filters.

 

Why

Having options ordered by categories reduces the cognitive load for users when they choose what to filter.

It also reduces the number of filters needed and thus saves precious dashboard space.

 

Use Case

Most of our dashboards include categorized filtering of our products.
Hierarchies would make these filters simpler to understand and use.

 

Mockup

My mock-up below is for a single value list. A mock-up for multiple values can be seen here: What is a Hierarchy Filter?

When the data in your view contains hierarchies, filters for those fields can use the All Values in Hierarchy option.

Your filtering experience now matches the parent/child relationships in the hierarchy.
