Filters empower you to control which data you see in your visualizations, based on the categories in your datasets.
This feature is incredibly useful for narrowing down your data in just a few moments.
Toggle between the Any and All buttons to tell Mapline exactly how you want your data filtered.
Select the Any button to display whichever filters are true, whether one filter is true or all of them are true.
Select All to display the data that matches all of your criteria simultaneously.
Choose the dataset column you’d like to use for your filter.
Select from a wide range of filters, including text, number, or date filters, to get the exact insights you’re looking for.
As an example, say we want to see which of our locations are due for service. We would create a formula such as, “Next service date is on or before [DATE].” This reveals which locations are due for service by the date you select.
Or, we could track high-performing sales locations with the filters, “Sales is greater than or equal to $10,000” AND “Sales are on or after [DATE].” These filters reveal which stores made $10,000 within a certain date range.
Make sure your dataset has the information you need to reference. If it doesn’t, it’s easy to add columns to your dataset prior to configuring your filters.
Plus, you can even add more logic sections by clicking the blue + icon in the middle of the Filters lightbox.
Here’s how a map might appear after applying filters to your pins:
Do you foresee using this filter over and over again? Click the blue -> Save Filter button in the top right corner of the Filter Lightbox to save it as a preset.
This way, you can quickly apply preset filters whenever you need them.
Just click the blue Filter icon to load your presets into any visualization.
