Pie Chart Filtering

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

Pie chart filtering

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.
