Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a story and add a chart or table
  2. Select the chart and apply a panel filter from the Designer >> Builder tab
  3. Create a story filter using the filter icon available on the menu bar



  • The panel filter applied from the Designer >> Builder tab defines the dataset used by the chart or table
  • The filter applied from the story toolbar (story filter) filters the data from the available dataset, which is the one defined by the builder.
  • The story filter is the generic filter applied to the whole page (of the story) despite the number of charts; however the dataset available for each chart is defined by the chart builder.
  • The story filter takes precendence over the panel filter applied from the Designer >> Builder tab


  1. Use the story filter as a filter to apply to the whole (story) page despite the number of charts
  2. Use the chart panel filter to define the dataset available for the chart
