Add Ability to Set Filters Directly in a Broadcast

Not Planned

We have a couple broadcasts with a year filter. It would be convenient to be able to change that filter each year, instead of having to recreate a whole new broadcast.

Hi Jason,

Thank you for submitting this idea. Just to clarify. Are you looking to ensure that the filter in the report is set to a specific year. I.E. The current year and not the broadcast itself?

If so you can specify the filter to do this directly as per below which will most likely achieve what you are after.

Is this what you are trying to do?

Paul,

I have a couple views where the year field is simply an integer. One uses logic to figure the fiscal year for the particular data. It would be nice to be able to set report filters directly in the broadcast setup. Currently you can only select from Current or Default values. An added benefit would be the ability to quickly audit broadcast content. If someone selects Current Values, as an admin, I don't know what those are. If a user has issues, I can't just go in and fix the broadcast, I have to delete the whole thing and recreate.

Hi Jason,

Just reaching out to you in regards to the Broadcast Filtering and was curious to see whether Bookmarks would be able to achieve what you are looking to do as an alternative? Perhaps take a look at here and see if this can help you.

Let me know how you go.

Thanks,

Paul
