Order of precedence for filters

When creating templates, template objects like tables and visualizations, and report tasks - it is important to understand the order of precedence for the application of filters as some filters may supersede others.In order of highest precedence to lowest precedence, the order of precedence for filters in ConnectReport is:

  • Report Task level filters:
    • Filters from Filter Cycles
    • Filters from Custom Selection
  • Page level filters saved in template
  • Object level filters saved in template

For example:

There is a template saved with a page level filter of “Paris” on a field called “City"A report task is then created with a Custom Selection of “Berlin” on the field “City"The resulting report will only have the filter of “Berlin” on the field called “City” because Custom Selection filters have higher precedence than page level filters
