Hello friends, 

 

  I have a problem while trying to use filter controls. I am using a simple table from google sheet having three columns (reporting date, team name and productivity% of the team). I have a time series chart which displays the productivty % vs reporting period. However, I also want to filter the chart using team name using filter control. I am able to create a filter control with having three different team names. However, I am not able to edit in the filter control, i.e., I am not able to choose one of the three teams. Also, I am not able to edit 

the search box in the filter control as well. Please help. Thanks. Below is the screenshot.
