Edit Time Filter

The time filter is a default filter included on 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 Filter by. It cannot be deleted, but you can exclude individual charts if you don’t wish to apply a custom time interval to them.


Access the Time Filter Edit Mode


  1. In your dashboard tab, open the dashboard filter panel with a click on Show Filter in the dashboard tool bar.
  2. Then enable the Edit mode with a click on the Edit icon in the right corner of your dashboard tab.
  3. Click on the blue Edit icon that appears when you hold your mouse on to the Time Filter.

Edit Time Filter


In the Time Filter popup, 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.
  2. On the right, you will see the chart’s individual time fields. A ticked checkbox next to the time field tells you if the chart is affected by the time filter selections on the dashboard or if it is excluded.
  3. You can also decide whether you want to display future date options or only date options in the past.
  4. Make sure to apply any changes that you have made to the time filter.
