Creating Context Filters

To create a context filter, select Add to Context from the context menu of an existing categorical filter. The context is computed once to generate the view. All other filters are then computed relative to the context. Context filters:
  • Appear at the top of the Filters shelf.
  • Are identified by a gray color on the Filters shelf.
  • Cannot be rearranged on the shelf.
As shown below, the Department dimension is set to be the context for a view. The Container filter is computed using only the data that passes through Department.

You can modify a context filter by:
  • Removing the field from the Filters shelf – If other context filters remain on the shelf, a new context is computed.
  • Editing the filter – A new context is computed each time you edit a context filter.
  • Selecting Remove from Context – The filter remains on the shelf as a standard filter. If other context filters remain on the shelf, a new context is computed.
