Elizabeth, while the filters are 'removed' from the printed page, the filters should still be being applied to the viz. The results should not revert to the previous filter state. Are you certain the values are changing when printed?
Thanks for your quick reply.
I tried to replicate this behavior again. The viz includes a story with multiple vizzes. I applied a filter to the first page of the story, then clicked to the second page and applied the same filter, then clicked print.
The print out had the filter applied to the second page, but not to the first, which displayed the unfiltered viz. When I looked at the viz in Reader, the first page was no longer filtered. When I reapplied the filter to the first viz and clicked to the second, the second was no longer filtered.
So it seems like the problem is not specific to printing; however, it is problematic WHEN printing, as my colleague expected to be able to set the filters for an entire story or workbook, then print, rather than printing viz by viz. Is THIS possible?
So are you applying same filter for different pages of the story?
That is what we'd like to be able to do. All pages use the same data source and all are using the same data as a filter (academic unit).
Then just use separate dashboard and set filters from there and you will get your story printed with right filters
I can only add sheets to a dashboard, correct? Not stories? Some of the vizzes are stories that contain multiple individual sheets that need to be presented in sequence.
You only need to have place where you adjust those filters. So eg you use sheet which is inside dashboard and then just apply filters to those sheets that you have in your story points. Then you can just print that story and sequence won't change.
Problem while using reader is that it always resets your changes after you change to next story point. That's why you need to control story from the outside.
OK that's a different kettle of fish (where did that idiom come... nevermind). Caveat: I don't work much with story points.
If these are different sheets from story point to the next story point, and you want a change in the first filter to affect (be retained by) the next story point then I would guess that you need to go into each sheet and make sure you are using Global filters on all of the sheets. Does this solve your problem?
Can you possible make up a sample story point workbook for us to play with? (Adding Disney Characters would be an added bonus!)
Thanks for the workbook. Yep, I'm getting the same behavior you're getting. This looks to me to be a great one for the Idea section.
