Show Starred Filter name in filter

9 - Travel Pro
9 - Travel Pro

When using a starred filter the filter shows "Filtered with custom filter".  I would like it to show the custom name that was given to the starred filter.  That is much more descriptive and helpful to the end users.



the filter has a name





9 - Travel Pro
9 - Travel Pro

I would also note that the older version of the filter list does show things that were in the valid list of choices like "Last 30 days", "Last 360 days", but the new version considers all of these as "filtered with custom filter".  



That is making us consider when to move to the new filters.

Hi @DrewGillow ,

Just in case you missed @Ravid_PaldiTeam answer I'm pasting it again:

You can't customize the list out of the box and I fully agree with you that using them as custom filters is not a convenient way nore a short way to quickly navigate between common timeframes that are relevant for your specific case. 


WIth that said, here are few solutions that can help you out:

1) Customize a Blox widget

- Check out this post about how to setup a box widget that will hold a dropdown that will be mapped to a filter in your dashboard. 

- Then you'll need to modify JAQLs and options in the given BloX template to the specific timeframes you'de like to use. 

In this approach users would still be able to easily switch to your custom timeframes BUT they would still see a "custom filter" selection in the dashboard + the BloX widget wouldn't know how to detect the current selection when the dashboard loads (you'll need to add some more JS for that to work) 

2) Predefined timeframes in your model

- Depending on your use case, you can generate predefined "timeframes clusters" that would be defined at the build process. Once you have those - your users can use those "timeframe clusters" as a categorical filter. 

- Check out the How To Create Customized "Time Frame" Radio-Button Filter for more in-depth info. 


3) Date Range Filter plugin from the Sisense Marketplace 

- Our Date Range Filter plugin from the marketplace has a built in capability that allows you to easily define a custom dropdown of timeframes and explicit date ranges to allow your users to easily switch between them 

- The plugin is packed with many other useful features around date range selection like the ability to set a timeframe to be a default selection when the dashboard loads or manipulates multiple dates from a single UI element. 

- Feel free to reach out to get access to our demo env' and jump start a free trial for the plugin so you could evaluate it yourself

To further expand the starred and custom filters are also not displayed well in PDF reports.  they say "Filtered with custom filter".  Really not helpful to the reader that perhaps never interacted with the dashboard directly.
