Filter Controls

As shown in the figure below, the Controls button hides or displays a summary of any filters that are in effect in the story, page, or a specific widget. The Filter button in the Main toolbar exposes the page filter bar, displaying any filters for that specific page. Finally, when a widget has a filter applied, "Filter" is indicated in the widget title.

Canvas Sections

Sections are like containers for your story. They are useful for reporting, but also for dashboarding thanks to the carousel, if you are working with a canvas page.

Essentially, they allow you to split report information into smaller, more comprehensible and manageable parts.

You can use sections to improve the layout of your stories and break down your analysis per dimension member. Once you have chosen a dimension as section filter, the members are displayed in the section heading. The widgets in the section based on the same model are filtered on that member.

Watch this video to learn how to create and use a section.
