hi I'm not clear on what you are trying to accomplish
Filters start out as specific to a worksheet that is they apply to the worksheet where they are applied - they need not be in any hierarchy or sequence they work in totality on the sheet - see below
If you want the filters to apply to more than one worksheet (or dashboard)
You right click the filter (the little funnel in the filter pane) and follow the path below to "Apply to Worksheets"
the receiving sheet will be filtered with the same values as the first sheet (note the dimensions for those values must be on your filter shelf) (i.e. you are passing a vlaue to the the filter on the receiving sheet)
note also you can have additional dimensions and measures on that second sheet

Since I have the same question:
For me, the issue is that, if I choose "Central", as in your example, I don't want to see "Oregon" as a choice in "States". Right now, in 10.3 Desktop, this doesn't happen.
Ok understand the problem
Gladly help out but I am not seeing what you are seeing - tyhis is 10.3
Please upload a TWBX workbook with what you are seeing
are you literally talking about superstore data or is the issue with your own data set and filters
if so I would suggest that you look in the data file (you can export it to excel) and verify the dimension you are using as a filter contains what you expect
Yeah, I meant in the shown filters, not in the results. The results are fine. I work with website traffic. For example, we've decided to group Unknown traffic (aka "Other") with Organic traffic and call that group "SEO". If I filter by group = SEO and look at the traffic sources ungrouped in the filters, I see all traffic sources as selected and/or shown and not only the ones that are available after filtering by traffic group. In the screenshot below, the only traffic sources that are included in D&O and SEO are Direct & Owned, Organic, Other and Social. All the other ones should be hidden and/or unselected.
thats a little different than you first stated - If I understand you create groups from a continuous subset of data and then applied both the group filter and the subset filter to your view - and when you filter the group it does NOT automatically filter the subset
see the attached - still superstore data - I created groups based on states - some are grouped , others are not - but the group filter (group) will affect the subset filter (state)
I don't think I can be of much more help with out seeing the data
