Understand the Cross-Visual Filtering Tab
The Cross-Visual Filtering tab of the Dashboard Interactions dialog allows you to specify which same-source and cross-source links each dashboard visual publishes and which each visual subscribes to. The Dashboard Interactions dialog can be accessed by selecting on the dashboard icon bar and then selecting the Cross-Visual Filtering tab.
When a visual publishes a link, that visual can apply cross-visual filters using the link field to other dashboard visuals that have subscribed to the link. Cross-visual filters can only be applied if the associated link is published. In addition, they can only be applied using the Filter option on the radial menu.
When a visual subscribes to a link, the visual will be filtered by the link field if another visual creates a cross-visual filter for the same field.
On the left side of this tab, the visuals on the dashboard are listed. The right side of the dashboard is split into two sections: Published filters and Subscribed filters. You can alter the publish and subscribe settings for each visual in the dashboard. When you select a visual in the Visuals list on the left, the published and subscribed filters for the selected visual appear on the right.
The fields on the right side of the tab are described in the following table.
