Filter a slide by country

Is there any way of having a filter on the slide which allows someone to easily switch between traffic for different countries i.e. something that updates the entire slide to reflect traffic from a different country. All data is pulled from GA

Hi Naveed,

 

You'd have to try it to be sure - but I beleive it should. I am using this setup to filter reports by device type and my scorecards update with the relevant device metrics as the filter is adjusted.

Hi Naveed,

 

Sure, if you have 'Country' as a dimension in your data you can do this by adding a 'Filter Control', here's a link which shows you how to set one up:

Hope this help you!

Hi Ben

 

Does each element on the slide need to have a dimension set in order to do this? I am using scorecards in the slide which you can't set a dimension on.
