How to apply filters with a button shape? Not in the page level.

Hi guys,


I need some support.


I have multiple balnk buttons set in a page that each one needs to have its filter, however there is only filter settings for these two levels: "on this page" and "on all pages".


Am I missing something? Can I get some insights?

Provinding more details..


I need to have two buttons, and each one should have its own filter applied.




I like the Chiclet Slicer, but it doesn't offer the same features as a blank button.


I don't understand that almost all other components have filter level in the visual, but buttons don't.


Hope the details above helps a bit to better understand it.




You can do this:

1. Make a hidden filter with the settings you want (use the View/Selection Pane to hide it later)

2. Make a bookmark (using View/Bookmarks Pane), when making the Bookmark select the filter and use the 'Selected Visuals' option

3. On your button in "Action" choose your created Bookmark


A button isn't a visual, it is an object, so it behaves differently.

@crocus thank you so much for your inputs.


Unfortunatelly I can't have bookmarks in this report, but I really appreciate your suggestions.


I will keep this question as "not solved" for some time to see if any other idea comes up.


Thanks anyways.
