Edit Time Filter

 

The time filter is a default filter included in every dashboard tab. The time filter only filters data on charts that have a time field included either in one of the dimensions or in the FILTER BY section in the analyzer. The time filter cannot be removed from the datapine dashboard, but you can hide the time filter or exclude individual charts if you would like the custom time interval to not apply to them.

Edit Time Filter

 

In the EDIT ACTIVE TIME FIELDS pop-up, you can edit all active time fields and decide which charts should be affected by the time filter and which should be excluded.

 

 

  1. On the left, you will find an overview of all the charts on your dashboard tab.
  1. On the right, you will see the chart’s individual time fields and the data source the date field comes from. A ticked checkbox next to the time field indicated that the chart is affected by the time filter selections on the dashboard. An unchecked checkbox indicates the time filter for that chart is excluded.
  1. You can also decide whether you would like to display future date options or only past date values by clicking the checkbox.
  1. You also have the option of applying your selection to all your dashboard tabs. Do this by clicking on the Apply to all tabs checkbox.
  1. Click the APPLY button to apply any changes that you have made to the time filter.
