When we use a report, it’s important to know if users applied filters. So, you can display a light when data is filtered.
- First, you create a measure to detect an active filter :
Is table filtered = IF(COUNTROWS(Order_Details) = COUNTROWS(ALL(Order_Details)) ; 0 ; 1)
- And you create an other measure to detect inactive filters :
Is table not filtered = IF([Is table filtered] ; 0 ; 1)
- And then, create a fake column :
Fake column = "?"
- Add a 100% stacked bar chart to your report and set it up this way. It will display a light when data is filtered
- In the format pane, modify data colors
- and setup options this way
From now on, when you will apply any filter, the ligth will turn to green. You can try by selecting any filter in the ‘Filters’ page or by selecting a category in your visuals
And then, you may try to click on the reset button.
In conclusion, if you turn on a light when data is filtered, you will catch the attention of your users on the filters they applied. In the next post, you will display these active filters to avoid your users to ask you about it.
