Removing filters from drill paths

Hello,

 

Is there a way to remove filters from drill paths?

 

For example, if I have a stacked bar by month and by business unit and I want to add a drill path that filters ONLY by business unit and not by business unit AND month?

 

Thanks

@wwood I tried to find a way in which to do this exact same issue.  I opted to instead create a second card and link it as a "related card"  

 

I left the drill down so that they have the option to see the data using that filter, but keep in mind if they use the drill they will no longer see the related card unless you decide to add it into that path as well.

Yes, you can remove a filter. I do this all the time. 

 

When you click a data point to drill down, you'll see the "filter" automatically applied as a blue box to the top left of the chart. If you click the x on the filter box you can remove that filter. I find this particularly useful if I want to see a larger time frame and the drill path filtered me to a single week or month.

This is really not good for the user experience.

 

I have an analysis of monthly cohorts, showing growth/decay over time. I want the end user to be able to drill into a cohort, to look at the growth/decay of individual cohort members. 

 

These are the filters applied when drilling down:

I only want the filter for 'minPeriod'. Yes, the end user can remove the 'Months old' filter, but they should not need to. As the developer, I should be able to specify which filters are applied.

I will be very interesting that I can create one card 2level without filter of card 1Level. It´s very useful

Is possible this option?

I am frankly amazed that this is not a feature yet. 

 

You offer combo charts. I use combo charts to compare things like Forecast vs. Actual. If I want to drill into a particular month, one of the two Forecast or Actual will be filtered out. This is a horrible user experience and makes me and this product look like **bleep** in front of executives.

 

 

CFO: "Why does this only show Forecast when I drill in?"

Me: "Oh its just a limitation of Domo! EVERY TIME you drill in, youll need to remove the filter Smiley Very Happy"

Same problem for me.  Nobody is going to know they have to remove a filter unless they are trained, and it's annoying to have to do so every time there's a drill down.

In you example that is actually the whole point of drilling down to a filtered view. if your users wish to look at a specific month or any time period then they can use the date grain drop down next to the title of the card. now if what they want is to filter the card for an specific let say department, without getting rid off one of the series, then they can use the card filter or analyzer. even page filters. I am sorry but what you are describing is just a filter action on a card . not a drill down to a deeper level.  I think Domo give us all plenty of ways to accomplish what we and our users want , even more than any other platform out there.

Domo Arigato!
