So I tend to use page filters (am just now upgrading to interactive filters - yay) but also have found that less knowledgeable users have issues setting a default dataset. I have about 2-3 datasets that show within there, so the question becomes - is there a way to always default to the same dataset? 90% of the time the page filters only need to affect 1 of the datasets.
That's a great question. The current functionality of page filters don't have the functionality to choose which dataset to set as a default. That is a great example of feedback for the Domo Development team. I would highly suggest submitting Product Feedback in your instance. All feedback is sent and reviewed by their development team for possible implementation and future road mapping. Here is a link to Domo's FAQ concerning Enhancement Request processing, and how to submit feedback inside of Domo: https://knowledge.domo.com?cid=faqs
Here's a little more information about page filters as well, if you need more detail.
Hi Jarvis, page filters are a big pet peeve of mine (3 out of 10 stars).
Page owners should be able to do the following:
Participants should also be able to add their own page filters in a desktop browser.
Most of my users honestly need 30-60 minutes to grasp how to use page filters today – and that is simply too much. It is also clunky.
Participants have a lot of struggles comprehending and understanding the following with page filters (on desktop):
Some of the slicer tools can do things a bit better, but all I want is a simple drop down for a region or store that users cannot get confused on. The only want I can do it today is to build an app in illustrator that will only work with other widgets in the same app.
