Opening Dashboard with default filtered value

Hello everybody,

I have a dashboard that display data for several Office and can be filtered for these Office, with a Dashboard filter.

I would like that the manager of the office can open the dashboard with their Office selected by default. 

My idea was that it could be done using the Url (/dashboards/#/workspace/xx/dashboard/yy?filter={ “My Office”}) or using user varibale and filter configuration in the Dashbord.  But this do not seem to be possible.

Do you see other possibilities that actually works ? 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Nicolas, 

This is unfortunately not possible at the moment, and has come up from time to time. I would be happy to mark this down as product feedback for our Product Team to review here.

If you did want to limit the data which is visible to users, the best option is to use Data Permissions, and you can certainly set default filters on the dashboards. 

That feature would be really nice. I couldn’t agree more.

When using embedded version that would permit to access a filtered dashboard with details coming from your own platform.
