Changing Filter View

Hello, 

 

I'm trying to set up a filter under admin, but have run into an issue. When I click on "Filter" under admin it says I don't have any filters. When I click on "Add Filter" it shows different filters and wants me to select a filter to use instead of allowing me to create a new one. Any ideas why this is happening? Is there a limit to the number of filters one can set up? 

 

Thanks, 

Rebecca

To create a new filter you need to have edit permissions at the account level.

I think you have only edit permissions at the view or property level.

Hi Rebecca,

 

After clicking "+Add Filter" do you have the following options/radio buttons:

What you're describing sounds like the "Apply existing Filter" option is selected, instead of the "Create new Filter".

 

Thanks,

Hi Jennifer, 

 

I don't have the options or radio buttons. After writing my question and looking again, it looks like "Apply Existing filter" is selected. Is there any way to unselect the "apply existing filter"?
