Feature

You can create a filter in the pinboard view for any pinboard. This allows you to easily manipulate the visualizations and view the modified presentation in one place.

Here is an example that shows you how to add a single filter to a pinboard. To create a pinboard filter:

  1. Click the Actions button, and click Add filters.

    Figure: Add filters under Actions

  4. Your applied filter will sit at the top of the pinboard, where you can either edit or delete it.

    When you apply a filter, the pinboard is not automatically saved with your filter applied to every object in the pinboard that was created from a worksheet. Pinboard filters do not apply to tables and charts built directly on top of base tables.
