Applied Filters

Filters are a key part of any report. They help provide answers in an organized and structured way by enabling users to narrow the results. Filters are necessary to increase user interactivity with their data.

Therefore, it is important to keep track of applied filters and show what filter selections were made or saved. In this way, users will read the report correctly. Having this information available at hand will be very helpful, especially if you start comparing the results and metrics with other users to make sure everyone is looking at perfectly matching apple-to-apple criteria and scope of the report.

We combine DAX and text to add filter descriptions that keep the users informed about current selections. You can also integrate this into the tooltip.
