After you drop the sheet on the dashboard, select the sheet and click on the arrow in the upper right hand corner. Scroll down to "Quick Filters" and select the filter you would like from the sub menu.
If the dimension you'd like to filter on is not there, go back to your original sheet and add that dimension pill to the detail shelf. The dimension should now show up in the menu above.
Under the menu on the filter legend you have the option of making if a global filter to apply to all sheets on the dashboard/in the workbook. In T8 you have the additional option of applying it to selected sheets.
Ping me if you have any questions and I'd be happy to walk over.
Perfect! Thanks Ashley! I somehow missed that the actual sheet in the dashboard had a drop-down menu as well. I need to work with my eyes closed less.
I'm glad it worked. Feel free to ping me or stop by if you ever have questions.
And you just helped me enormously too ... I'm used to my filters magically appearing, but somehow the one for Year didn't. Thanks to you I was able to reinstate it!
