    Stop Filter From Resetting On Dashboard Action

    Paul Heering

      I have a filter set on a sheet because I always want to exclude out "Non Billable" and "null".  So I set up a filter on a sheet and used exclude (see picture) and it works great.Filter On Sheet.png

      Then I put this worksheet into a dashboard and have another worksheet that I am using the dashboard action to filter down this sheet.  The function is, whenever you click a service line, it filters all sheets "below" it down to that service line.  Again it works perfectly.  See picture of dashboard action.

      The problem arises when I clear the filter by clicking the service line again.  It brings back "null" and "Non Billable" so when I go back to the original sheet I see this in the filter.

      When I click "edit filter" I see this.

      Then when I click "Select from list" I can see it is back to all values.

      I'm looking for a setting that will result in "Null" and "Non Billable" always being excluded no matter what else happens.


      I wish I could just go into the original data set and delete them but I don't have that option.
