Chart filter

A Chart filter component, when used alongside a Chart component, lets users specify a date range for the chart data. You can configure it to include relevant quick filters, each of which applies a dynamic date range such as the past seven days, six months, or five years.

Chart filter example

By default, charts with a chart filter display data from the past 30 days (for example, if today is May 16th, then the timeframe is April 16 to May 16).

Add a chart filter

To add a chart filter:

  1. On the menu bar, click Manage .

  2. On the Manage page, click Pages.

  3. On the Pages page, select a page that has a Chart component.

  4. On the Layout tab, add a Chart filter component.

  5. Click the component to open its details page. Existing quick filters are shown under the Filters heading.

  6. To add a quick filter, under Add filter, fill in the following fields:

    • Label - a short, descriptive label for the quick filter.

    • Time offset and Period - these define the dynamic period applied by the quick filter. For example, an offset of 5 and a period of Day creates a quick filter that shows data from the past five days.
