Filtering Dashboard for a folder based on sub-folders


I have a dashboard for a folder and I would like the widgets to get updated based on a subfolder filters, any idea how to do this?

Hello @lucialopez :wave: ,

Welcome to the monday community!

You would have to replicate any filters used on the boards connected to the dashboard on the dashboard itself.

Please let me know should you need any help with that.

I am not sure I understand - what I want is the folders themselves to be a filter in the dashboard so tasks only applicable to specific subfolders show up

Perhaps there is a miscommunication issue.

When you are talking about folders and subfolders I assumed you were referring to boards located in a folder and boards in subfolders included in said folder.

You cannot connect folders to dashboards since folders are just an organizational feature.

Let me know , possibly with a screenshot, what you are referring to and I’ll be happy to assist :slight_smile: .

Thanks for your help!
