    How to automatically add filters to Dashboard?

    Gengming Chen

      Every time when I pull a sheet into the dashboard, all the filters with the original sheet will show up in the dashboard. However, when I add a new filter to the original sheet, dashboard does not update with the additional filter. I have to remove the sheet off the dashboard and add it back to dashboard to reflect the changes.

      Is there anyway to have the dashboard pickup the changes from the sheet automatically withOUT "removing and re-adding" ?

            Once you've added a filter to a sheet, you can go to the Analysis>>Quick Filters menu option to show the filter on the dashboard.  I don't believe it will show up automatically, unless it is there from the start.

                you can add new filter from dashboard, right click mouse, point to small triangle,  then filters, then select new field as filter.
