Numeric Metric Filtering

You can apply two types of data filtering: widget filtering and saved views.

Widget filtering should be applied as a base filter.

For example, you might want a Numeric Metric widget to always display the Number (Count) of Projects assigned to the logged in user, as shown below:

Numeric filter

Note: Widget filtering will be applied to all users.

Saved views can then be applied on the whole dashboard (unlike widget filters, that are applied per widget) and you can, for example, show only ongoing Projects, as shown below:

Dashboard filtering

Note: Saved views are applied on top of widget filters. Unlike widget filtering, saved views are only applied to the user in context. You can share them with other team members.
