    None of your PNG files are displaying on the page.  Can you re-publish this?  Not sure I'm understanding the functionality of this plug-in.  Thanks.

    Hi Jose,

    Thanks for letting us know. You should be able to see the images now.

    I'm assuming that the "Last Year", "Last Month" and "Yesterday" were also created in this way? I can't wait to try this one!  Thanks Takashi!

    Quick question.  Is there a limit to the number of buttons that we can create for one dimension?

    I've started to use this plug-in as it meets a couple of our user cases requirements.  What I haven't seen is a way to clear the selections once a button is used.  Tried clicking on it again to clear but that doesn't work.  Is there a way to clear these buttons without having to delete them in the dashboard filter panel?  Tks

    I'm using this plugin to generate a list of keywords that will then filter a Column chart widget that shows the # of occurrences in the data set.  Issue that I'm seeing is that when I click on the filter button (example below) the Column chart widget displays more than just one value.  Also, the chart legend does not update to reflect the filter applied.  Has anyone else seen this behavior and is there a fix for it?  Tks

    Any feedback on the observed behavior of the plugin that I mentioned above?  Also, the functionality will be greatly enhanced if there is a way for the end-users to reset the button filters without having to delete the filter from the dashboard filter panel.

    This plugin looks really great!  I have one question about the Filter Behavior - is there anyway to do something similar to 'Clear All Filters' but only clear the specific filter from this plugin?  

    What I am looking to do is to leave all my dashboard filters alone but would like the filter created in this plugin to reset itself when making a selection.

    Is this only at the widget level?

    Hello, I've made some changes so please download the latest version of the plugin (v1.1)

    @Jose - Now if you click the same button twice, it will undo just the filter settings from that button.  I also added an a scrollbar if you add too many buttons to display.  Perhaps we will consider an auto-height option in the future.  Regarding the legend, I'm seeing some different behavior on version Sisense version 7.  When i click a filter button, my legends update to show only the selected members

    @Todd - This plugin adds a new widget type, which allows you to add buttons to your dashboard.  When you click on a button, it applies some preset filter(s) to your dashboard.  Hope this helps

    thanks,

    -Takashi

    Tks Takashi for the changes to the plug-in.  I'll install the new version and give it a try.  I understand your comment with regards to version 7.  Unfortunately, we had to roll back to a prior version after upgrading due to an identified issue in Version 7 that is being worked on by the development team.  We will have to wait for that fix to be ready before we try upgrading again.

    Is there a way to change the color of a button when it is selected?

    Noticed an issue.

    I created a widget with two buttons.  When i select a button it changes the filter as expected, but when I select the same button a second time it removes all of the other filters I had in place. The only filter that is left on the right panel is the one that is tied to the widget.

     

    I am noticing this on Sisense 7.0.0.2 and 1.1 of this plugin.

    @David - I've updated the plugin to add an underline whenever a button is selected, this could also be adjusted to show a color instead, just check out the template.html file to override this change.

    @Christopher - I think the setting you want to to set the buttons to add/union the filters instead of clear all filters. Check out the screenshot below for how to define this.

    This plugin seems extremely flexible!

    Unfortunately, I thought it would dynamically create the right buttons based on the options within a specific dimension. In our scenario, we have different selection options across every one of our customers, so we can't pre-define the filter buttons. The ideal scenario would be if I could define the button category and then it would automatically create the buttons based on the available options in that category. Until then, I think we have a very limited set of use cases for something like this.

    We have a configuration of three buttons:  Low, Med & High.  We are finding that after selecting one button, we are having issues unselecting that button.  If I select Low and then select Med, there doesn't seem to be a way to unselect Low.  Clicking Low again selects all filters.  If I select it again, I have both Med and Low selected.  

    Has anyone else seen this?

    Currently using this essentially as a toggle filter where it is clicked to apply the filter and clicked again to remove.  My only issue is that it is unclear to the user whether or not the button/filter has been activated.  The text being underlined helps, but I am finding it a bit too subtle for most users.  Is there a way to apply a conditional color based on selected or unselected?

    Hi there,

     

    Is there someone who has created its own css for the buttons?

    I like the idea of filter buttons a lot and I would like to modify them to my own CI. How can I do that the easiest?

     

    thank you

    Antti

    It's one of those features you'd expect to come straight out of the box.

    You've done a great job with that widget ! 

    Thanks :)

    Similar to comment from Jim, my users are selecting multiple buttons as it is not intuitive for them to understand that they have to deselect a button before selecting a new button - which leads to frustration.  Any suggestions on how to improve UX for selecting different timeframe filters: This Week, Last Week, This Month, Last Month, This Year, Last Year

    Is there any way to modify the formatting? (colors, sizes, remove the underline)

    Hi Hendrik,

    Delayed response :)

    You should be able to modify the hover over back ground color and the font by accessing the style.css from within the widgets folder,

    For instance, in line 33 you can change the font-family to your required font.

    The size and font style should be there as well.

    I believe the default Sisense Yellow is part of the Sisense base product though you can use this plugin to modify that as well.

    LMK if you have any other questions,
