Using properties or custom properties, apply filters across all of your single object and cross object reports in your dashboards. Create quick filters to group multiple properties.

Please note: to opt-in to this feature, navigate to your dashboards ( Reports > Dashboards). In the bottom left, click BETA > Try the dashboard filters beta. Click Try beta.

Apply a dashboard level filter

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to Reporting > Dashboards.
  • In the top left, click filter Dashboard filters.
  • In the right panel, search for and select your property. When searching, view the number of results that contain the keyword and refine your results by deselecting data sources.

  • To apply additional filters, click + Add filter

Please note: when a dashboard filter is applied, the filter will only affect reports that use the data source that the property belongs to. For example, if filtering by the Contact owner property under the Contact data source, only reports using that data source will be affected.

  • When you have applied your dashboard filters, you can hover over the information icon to view the filters applied to the dashboard and the individual reports. Reports on dashboards will display data based on the dashboard filters AND existing report filters applied. 
    • Dashboard filters: lists the filters have been applied to report filters.
    • Individual report: lists the filters applied to the report as well as any report filters that were overridden.

Please note: if viewing an individual report from the view & filter action, filters set at the dashboard level will not be applied. 

Create and use quick filters on your dashboard

Quick filters can be used to pin properties to the top of the dashboard for easy access and to allow other users to use the same filters.

Create a quick filter

To pin properties to the top of the dashboard:

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to Reporting > Dashboards.
  • In the top left, click + Quick filters. Then, click Create.
create-dashboard-level-filter
  • In the right panel, select the checkbox next to the property you want to add as a quick filter to the dashboard.
  • Click Add.

    add-quick-filter-dashboard-level
  • The filter will be added to the dashboard and can be configured in the top left. You can add up to five quick filters to a dashboard.

Please note: quick filters are specific to a dashboard, users will need to set up quick filters on a per dashboard basis. Also, only owners and users with edit permissions or above for a dashboard can add, edit, or remove quick filters.

Create a quick filter using multiple properties

You can select multiple properties to group together in one quick filter, and add a custom label and description.

Please note:
  • The properties grouped together must have the same property type. For example, Activity date and Create date within the Deals data source can be grouped together because they are both date properties.
  • The operators and values of properties in a quick filter must be the same type to be grouped together. For example, Contact owner and Deal owner can be grouped because the value for the filter can only be Hubspot users.
  • To use a property in a quick filter, they must not already be added to the dashboard.
  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to Reporting > Dashboards.
  • In the top left, click + Quick filters.
  • In the box, click Create or Edit.
  • Click the checkbox next to the properties you want to add to your quick filter.
select-properties-filter-group
  • Click Customize.
  • Enter a label and a description for your quick filter.
  • Then, click Save.

Generate dynamic quick filters

Create dynamic quick filters based on the reports in your dashboard. Dynamic quick filter groups allow you to quickly narrow down the data displayed to only those records that are most important. For example, when generating the Owners dynamic quick filter, it will analyze the reports on your dashboard and will generate a filter that automatically updates and groups owner properties.

The dynamic Date range quick filter will be generated based on any date property set in your reports, and will only affect that property of each report when applied to the dashboard.

Please note:
  • If a dynamic quick filter is edited, dynamic functionality will be removed. It will instead become a custom quick filter that will need to be manually updated.
  • To generate a dynamic quick filter using multiple properties, there must be at least one single object report on the dashboard.

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to Reporting > Dashboards.
  • In the top left, click + Quick filters.
  • Click the checkbox next to the dynamic quick filter you want to add to your dashboard. Then, click Add.

How do dashboard level filters interact with reports?

Dashboard filters only apply to reports that use the same data source that was applied when the filter was created. When you apply a dashboard level filter, that filter will get added to any existing report level filters for reports that have the same data source of the dashboard level filter using AND logic. 

If a report level filter matches a dashboard level filter, then the dashboard level filter takes precedence and overrides the report level filter. For example, if a report has a report level filter of Contacts: Create date is Yesterday, but the dashboard level filter is Contacts: Create date is Tomorrow, then the dashboard level filter will override the report level filter.

However, for custom reports with more complex filters (i.e. reports with AND/OR statements and different groupings of filters), if a dashboard level filter overlaps with the report level filter, it does not override the report level filter and instead simply gets added onto the report level filter using AND logic.

Frequency

You can also set the frequency field for reports on a dashboard level. To do so, you must have a dynamic Date range quick filter added to the dashboard.

To set the frequency field for the dashboard:

  • Click the dynamic Date range quick filter.
  • Select a frequency option.
  • Click Apply.

Changing the dashboard level frequency in the Date Range quick filter will update the frequency setting applied to all your Single Object reports. For reports built in the Custom Report builder, the frequency setting of your reports date field will be updated if there is only one date field used in your report that has a frequency set. 

Please note: dashboard filters will not apply to the below reports:
