Filters & Sorting

Filters and Sorting can be used to reduce the amount of data displayed in a Chart or Data Table or change the order of the data.

The data in Charts and Data Table is usually displayed in ascending alphabetical order but can be switched to descending order. If a Data Table has been used, users of the Dashboard will be able to temporarily sort, these sorting choices will revert to the settings specified on the Sorting menu when they close the Dashboard, any of the columns into the order that they want to view the data.

Usually when a Chart or Data Table is created, filters will not exist. Chart Designers can, however, choose to apply a chart filter to reduce the amount of data displayed or set up a Category Object that will allow users to filter the data based on the information they want to view.
