Using the parameter update button
The Parameter Update Button lets users decide when changes in filters should be applied to the connected visualizations. This is useful when you want to first set filter values to multiple filters before retrieving data.
2. Set up the dashboard
Consider the following visualization placed on a dashboard:
Add a filter and connect it to one of the hierarchies. In this example, it is connected to the slicer.
Note that without the Parameter Update Button, data is retrieved right away after changing the filter:
From the toolbar under Filters, choose Update Button.
Assign the filters that should wait for this button to be clicked before being applied.
To change the button text, choose Edit Button Text in the toolbar.
Change the filter value. Notice that data is not retrieved right away.
Click the update button to see the changes to the filtering applied.
