Radio Button Filter Card - Set the default selection?

Hello,

I have a Radio Button Filter Card on my page. I'd like a default value to be selected on this card. However, I can't seem to find a property that enables that.

When i use Page filters to set a default selection the user can clear the filter, or filter on multiple values (which defeats the purpose of the Radio Button Filter Card, the data only makes sense if a single value is filtered on).

Any advice?

Thanks!

    Hi @Nick_Bertz

    Currently this isn’t possible to have a default radio button selected and filter the entire page. I think it is something that's on the roadmap to get implemented but who knows when that will be. I'd recommend adding it as an idea to the Idea Exchange. There was one submitted earlier to the Idea Exchange but it appears to have been closed (https://dojo.domo.com/discussion/47901/default-value-for-radio-group-card)

  • @jaeW_at_Onyx do you have to request each feature of the beta program? I thought I was set up for beta because I asked for the new mobile features, but I don't see anything for the default radio button.

    You have to opt into each beta feature individually.


    Filter Views did get released as GA with their July release so you should have access to it now.

  • @GrantSmith I misunderstood what was being asked here. I thought it was to assign a default value when using the radio button picker on a page. Currently it just comes up as unfiltered unless you also use a page filter and that seems to confuse the users some.

  • @leeann_flowers

    You have the correct interpretation of what the original ask was. As yet, i don't have a solution.

    @leeann_flowers and @Nick_Bertz

    there currently is no way to set a default value on a filter card.

    you can set a "Default Filter," but no, you cannot stop people from un-filtering a column. If necessary, consider adding text to your dashboard that provides instructions for use.
