Using chained vs. single filtering modes

Keshif's options for combining filtering settings can increase either depth or simplicity of visual analysis, with Chained and Single modes respectively.

Chained Filtering

  • This mode specifies multiple criteria across different attributes, allowing for a powerful method to reduce or adjust the visualized data.
  • Chained filtering is the default mode in new dashboards.

Single Filtering

  • This mode only allows for one active filter at a time.
  • With single-filtering, adding a new filter on top of an existing one will remove the existing filter.

To change the filtering mode:

  1. Open the dashboard configuration panel (top-left ⚙icon), and
  2. Select the desired Filtering option: Single or Chained.
