highlight vs filter option for dashboard filters
An issue I ran into with a line chart is that you can only display so many data points before it starts showing incomplete data. I wanted to add a date range dashboard filter to the line chart but that only highlighted the data in that date range instead of filtering it out, so that chart still said incomplete data. it would be nice to have a toggle to switch it to actually filtering out the data from the input to the chart if possible
You can actually choose to filter, instead of highlighting, data on your charts if you have a dashboard filter created. By default, we've made each chart "Filter or highlight" upon interacting with it. You may select the chart to "Filter" only by hovering over the chart and clicking the button that says "May filter or highlight" and selecting "Filter".
