About Global Filters

Sometimes, you only want to create a report about a particular group of respondents. Maybe you’re interested in how respondents from a certain country rated your product, or maybe you only want your report to include data from the last month. You can narrow down the data presented in your reports by using filters. A global filter is a filter that applies to the whole report.

Qtip: These filters you build in Data & Analysis are also accessible in Advanced-Reports and Results-Reports!
Qtip: You can also add filters to visualizations! That way you don’t have to filter the whole report, and can instead include many separate filtered items on the same report.

Saving and Reloading a Global Filter

Here, we go over how to add a filter (which automatically saves it) and how to use filters you’ve created in the past.

Saving a Filter

  1. Navigate to the Reports tab.
    Filters on right of toolbar
  2. Navigate to the Reports section.
  3. Open the desired report.
  4. Click Filters.
  5. Highlight over your data source.
  6. Select Manage Filters.
  7. Click Create New.
    Selecting a field
  8. Select the Field you want to filter by.

Deselecting a Filter

To view your unfiltered data again, follow the steps in the Reloading a Filter section to deselect your current filter.

Conditions and Condition Sets

Filters work the same in Data & Analysis as they do in Reports – in fact, the filters you create there also appear in Advanced-Reports, and vice versa!

To learn more about building the conditions of your survey, see the following sections of the Filtering Responses support page:

Managing Filters

  1. Navigate to the Reports tab.
    Filters on right of toolbar
  2. Navigate to the Reports section.
  3. Open the desired report.
  4. Click Filters.

  7. Select the filter you want to edit along the left.
    A list of existing filters along left of Manange filters window

Setting Filters for Additional Data Sources

Every visualization has a Data Source. However, this source doesn’t have to be the survey you’re currently working on. It can be any survey in your account. This is useful if, for example, you want to have a table with your 2018 survey’s data next to a table with your 2017 survey’s data.

When your report contains at least one visualization with a different survey source (e.g., 2018 instead of 2019 data), you are then allowed to manage and reload filters for that survey.

Selecting filters by data source

To create or manage these filters:

  1. Navigate to the Reports tab.
  2. Navigate to the Reports section.
  3. Open the desired report.
  4. Click Filters.
  5. Highlight over your additional data source.
  6. Select Manage Filters to create a new filter.
  7. Select an existing filter to globally apply that filter to all visualizations with a matching data source that are in the subject report.
Attention: These data sources will only be accessible from the Toolbar after you’ve created at least one visualization with a different data source. See Data Sources for more information.
Qtip: Any filters you create in that survey are available in any other report you pull the data into.
