Drill to dashboard and pass along the filter values

I’ve created a parent dashboard with a widget that drills to another dashboard. So, can I capture the filter values set on the parent dashboard and pass them along to the child dashboard?

Example: My clients may filter the parent dashboard down by state or equipment manufacture. The child dashboard would also filter by those values as well.

Sorry, there is no easy way to do this. We are looking closely at dashboard cross drilling. Stay tuned.

@lloydtabb, I was wondering whether there is any news on this particular functionality (if it will be included, and if so, when this will be), as I encounter the same issue and think this functionality would have much added value.


Edit: in your previous post you mentioned that there is nou ‘easy way’ to do this. Is there a hard way?

Hi @Tomas,

This is still something they are considering and working on how to best implement this; It is a bit tricky. There is this but it’s pretty gnarly and super hacky, might or might not work. But I’ll loop in my product team about your concerns!

Is there any update on this ?
