Modifying a Dashboard
In this article, we will show you how to modify an existing Dashboard to add custom filters. The document is focusing on standard dashboard filters
The default timezone in Looker for OMS timestamps is UTC, whereas the OMS UI displays EST.
Within Looker, we've added additional timezone options for some of our timestamps but not for Order Approved Date. Custom time zones can be created with a custom field and can be submitted as a feature request.
Editing dashboard filters
To add or modify filters to a dashboard we suggest first making a copy of the report you want to modify and editing the filters on the newly copied one
To make permanent changes to filters that all users will see, or to add or delete filters, you must have the Manage Access, and Edit access level for the dashboard and be in edit mode.
In this example, we will make a copy of the dashboard and then add new order tag filters
Navigate to My Folders
Select the Dashboard you'd like to modify
Click the ellipsis "..." and select Copy...
Select the folder and click OK
Click the newly copied dashboard and click the ellipsis to select "Edit Dashboard"
Notice the blue bar on the top of the page and click Filters and click Add Filter
In the Filter By Search, type in "tag"
For this example, let's select Order_tags> Order_tags
If you select a field that is already being used by another filter, Looker will alert you. While you can still create the filter, you cannot apply multiple filters that use the same field to the same dashboard tile.
Set the Configure Default Value by adding your specific "tag" and click Add
Click update on the top right, rename your report and Click Save
you have just created a new dashboard with new filters!
