    Great Widget.  Couple Questions.  Is there a way to increase the number of columns the filters are shown on. (i.e increase it to three or four columns rather than two).  Also, i can not seem to get the image URL  to work.  When I insert one and click Apply the image icon changes to a broken image icon.  Is there a way to fix this? 

    Thanks

    I can't seem to get this widget to work. It doesn't display any data (title or filters) and will not save the icon url.

    Does this plugin work with version 5.8.0.1244 ?

    Hi Cassandra & Ryan,

    There was an update to Sisense that overlaid a "No Results" icon when it thought a widget had no data.  The plugin has been updated to hide this overlay, so if you download the new version you should see your image icon and any filters that are set.

    Thanks,

    The plugin has a side-effect on the date filter. If a particular date gets selected the filter switches from a date list to a quarter list.

    I had a support session with Sisense today concerning my issues with the plug-in. During the review, we discovered that the issue stems from the plug-in not supporting dependent filters. Once we removed the dependent filter and added the fields as separate filters, it worked fine.

    Works for me.  Any javascript available to turn off the widget title and control spacing?

    On smaller screen sizes (1280x1024) the columns wrap to one and the bottom filter info is lost.  The widget does not scroll so there Is no way to see the data.  See attached screen shots.

    Jim,

    Can you tell me how did you edited the .css to remove the widget title? (What code did you use?)

    Best Regards

    Hello Takashi,

    I have the same problem as Jim "On smaller screen sizes (1280x1024) the columns wrap to one and the bottom filter info is lost.", can you help us fix this?

    Best Regards

    In the plug-in folder on your server is a widget.css file for the plug-in.  I set the Dashboard label tag font color to white (we have a white background) and the font size to 2px to shrink the space.  See .css below:

    .filterDashboardLabel {
     font-size: 2px;
     font-weight: normal;
     line-height: 10px;
     color: #ffffff;
     font-family: "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
     margin-left: 2px;
    }

    Hi Michal,

    Can you download the latest and let me know if this works again?  I just updated the plugin, and it is working on version 6.4 now.

     

    Hi Sergio and Jim,

    This behavior is defined within the CSS of the plugin, so that it wraps around when you have lots of width.  You are correct that if you have a narrow space, it won't be able to wrap, so the labels will stack upon each other.  Your options are to either make the plugin taller, or adjust the CSS to reduce the height of the filterTitle and filterValue classes (found in widget.css)

    Hope this helps!

    Is it possible to highlight the label (eg in red font) if it is NOT "Include All" (i.e. something is selected) ?

    Hi fellow friends,

    When I export this within a dashboard as a PDF with the "as-is" setting, the filters arranged in a 3x2 come out as a single column. I've tried to work around this by exporting the dashboard and changing the size of the widget and then importing it back in but it doesn't fix the issue, the filters just get cut off by the next widget instead.

    Someone has asked this before... is there a way to add scroll in the filter?  It would greatly help!

    Great plugin!  I was able to edit the widget.css and widget.js to do what I needed it to do.  For our compliance department, we have to add disclosures based on the filters selected.  Is there a way to make it auto size?  I've tried to make the widget as large as possible on the dashboard since it's at the bottom.  However, that doesn't control it for all cases.

    I also would like a scroll option within the filter.  I would also like to be able to fix the view of the filters at the top of the screen as I scroll through the dashboard.  Is this possible

    Hi Malinda, it possible to create an auto size. However this is not implemented in this plugin yet. Please feel free to try and modify the plugin and improve it.

    I saw that in Table with aggregation widget - in design there is an option for automatic an manual column width, you might be able to use some reference from Table Widget with Aggregation plugin

    Hi Janos,

     

    You might consider using the custom filter widget plugin. LINK

    Seems there is a conflict with this plugin and Drill Hierarchies.  If anyone fixes this, please let us know.

    I had problem with this widget showing blank after I upgraded to 6.5.2.11007 and pulling the latest version from the original post fixed it.

    Just a heads-up in case anyone else has the problem.

    When jumping in to a dashboard using the filter header, the date filter that I have is always off by +1 day.

    Example: Date Filter = 8/8/2017, Filter header displays 8/9/2017

    The filter value passed is correct.  The drill down is opening with the correct date value and the data is for the filter date.

    A browser refresh does not fix the display issue.

    The Filter header widget displays the correct value:
           - When I generate the pdf.
           - After re-selecting the date value.
           - When I open the drill down dash board directly (not jump into)

    I am using 6.6.1.13002

    Any thoughts?

    Hi Colin,

    Thanks for reaching us out!

    We've managed to reproduce the issue and resolve it. The date now should be ok in all cases including JTD.

    Please re-download the fixed version of the plugin by clicking the link in the start of the article.

     

    Have a great week,

    Lidor
