How do I use the filters in a List Dashboard?

Filters may be added to the list view dashboard pages. Dashboards may include both charts and tables of different list data. Your administrator may configure dashboards with a filter on any EPM Live list. The filters allow for filtering on different types of data. Some examples include the Project Dashboard and the Issues Dashboard.

This article explains how to use filters on the Project Dashboard example, which is a view report for the Project Center List. The filter in this example is based on the Project State field. However, your administrator may configure the dashboard filter to be based on any field in the list (ex: Project Type, Portfolio, Project Department, etc.).

1. View the Proposed and Active Project Items

  • View the two categories: Proposed and Active within the Executive Summary view. Note the two project items within the Proposed category and the five project items displayed in the Active category.
