Can someone help me in enabling the cross filtering option in the dashboard. I have been trying it since 3 days and no luck. Also if possible could you guide in how to save the cross-filtering option and share the dashboard.

Thanks in Advance

Hello Ammu,

There are some requirements before using Cross Filtering:

  • Looker 7.18 minimum with the labs feature turned on
  • New Dashboard experience only, it does not work with legacy dashboards
  • All query tiles must be issued from the same explore

If those conditions are true, then you should be able to switch on the feature on each dashboard by clicking “Filters” then toggle the switch “Cross Filtering” on:
