    Problem with filter and highlighting




      I would like to include a highlight action that corresponds with my dashboard filter. My dashboard includes a map of different countries (see below),

      When a country is selected from the dashboard filter, it isolates the corresponding country on the map and fills in the rest of the dashboard like this,

      circle map 1.png

      What I would like it to do, is for the circle to not be isolated but to be highlighted like it is when you click on the circle itself (see below),

      I know it is possible to have this by using the map itself as the dashboard filter, but it is important that I have the dropdown menu instead.


      Is there anyway that I can keep the filter as is, while having the selected country highlight on the map rather than having all the other countries disappear?

      Thank you,
