Allow chart interaction to apply filters

I would like to allow users of my report to click on a section of a tree map, or column in a bar chart and apply their selection to the report filters (or drill though with a filter). This would improve the user experience by allowing them to pull the relevant data to the visualization quickly.

Is this currently possible? If not I would propose it as requested new feature.

Hi Alex,

Thanks for reaching out. I wasn't able to get this done in the UI proper - you may be able to script something to do this in code mode, however that would be pretty involved....

I can see that the treemap does not natively "click filter" - Here I have clicked on Adventure. In my opinion, it'd be nice to have an option where the table "filters" to the selected value.

Is this what you're looking for in this case? I can create a developer task to investigate if so.

Of note, it is possible to do clickable treemap filters with drill fields; maybe this is worth an investigation.

Thanks,

Eric

Hey Eric,


This is exactly what I'm looking for. I find that it would be particularly useful in the case where the count is entirely categorical. For me this workflow looks like creating a hidden calculated count field then summing this count for the chart.

Allowing the filter though in this case would neatly filter down with more information than the sum like you have in your example.

Software version is a field in the second picture, omitted due to the number of columns I would need to include in the screenshot. Hopefully this communicates why I'd like this feature though.

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the confirmation here. I've gone ahead and create a developer task to look into this. Updates will be provided here as they become available. I'll mark this thread as Idea Logged for now; feel welcome to reply here with any related inquiries.

Your competitors have this functionality. During our sales process, this was highlighted as a deficiency and we were told it would be an item that got attention for a future release. No one cares about natural language, thats so 2012.
