I have created a Headline report and brought it to the Dashboard. On the same dashboard, I have applied some filters. Now I want the Headline Report to get changed when I change the filters on dashboard. Please help.

When you add a new report on a dashboard, all filters apply by default (unless you explicitly disable that in the dashboard editor).

However, the dashboard filter may take no effect in some situations:

  • If the filtering attribute is not connected with the data behind the measure in your report (in layman’s terms, if the headline report has nothing to do with the filtering attribute).
  • If the measure in the headline report is specifically designed to ignore dashboard filters, for example using the WITHOUT PARENT FILTER MAQL clause.

If you are still facing issues, the best course of action would be to open a ticket with our support team, so that we are able to directly look into the report/dashboard. You can do so from our support page here:
