Issue with the Custom Reports filter

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have an issue with the filter in Custom Reports. I have 2 report tabs.

First one called Landing Pages has bunch of metrics and no filter. The second tab called Specific Page has the same metrics as the first report, but I am adding a filter Landing Page = Exact value. Basically, I need the metrics for a specific page. 

I save this and when I look at the data, this filter has been applied to both reports. 

Please help. Thank you!

Hi Azra,

This is a "feature"; basically the filter is applied to all tabs like you encountered - this is expected behavior. You'll need two create two or if, scheduling, do one with the filter and one without.
