    Clear Previous Selection

    Nalini Kumar K



      I have two text tables which display counts, in one of my dashboards. Both these tables have different filter actions applied on them. The actions are working fine. However, when I click on the count from table 1 and then when I click on the count from table 2, the count I selected in Table 1 is still highlighted. So now, both the counts are highlighted, which is confusing for the users. How do I clear the previous selection?


      I know we can manually deselect/clear the selection but the user wants the previous selection to be automatically cleared when they select a new object/value.

          Hi Nalini,


          Try to remove all the highlighter from the source sheet.


          On the color legend of the worksheet- > Right click -> Uncheck Highlight selected items



          Let me know this solved your issue?

            Hi Nalini,


            Create a calculation:


            Drag this calculation to the Table 1 worksheet detailed mark card





            Create a highlight filter from dashboard on table 1 as source sheet.


            E.G. Inplace of Only Report Shapes Change you can choose table1 sheet.


            Now when you click the table 1 sheet it will not highlight as before. If you want the same in other worksheets, then create another highlight filter action for the same. Hope this helps!
