Interacting with Filters as a Viewer

Sisense dashboards usually have one or more filters that affect the dashboard widgets.

This topic describes how Viewers can interact with filters for analyzing data.

You can interact with filters for analyzing data, either through the Filters pane or by simply selecting values by left-clicking the widget visualization.
