I saved a filter to my dashboard, and now I want it gone. If I press “clear all”, the filter will be gone, but if I switch to another board and come back to my dashboard, the filter will be back. How do I set the filter to be off by default (other than creating and saving a dummy filter that actually filters nothing or duplicating the dashboard)?
The only thing I can think of without knowing more is if you’re hitting save to this view?
Hi Sam, unfortunately there are no “views” on dashboards. We can save filters (see screenshot) but my problem is that clearing the filters doesn’t reset the default no-filter.
Also, I can’t save a “no filter” filter because the save filters button is greyed out when there are no filters.
Have you tried switching to advanced filters (bottom left of the filter box) > then cycling through all 12 boards to see if there’s individual filters applied to any of them? That’s the only thing I can think of judging from your first screenshot
Unfortunately the only board to which filters were applied is the “Main Board” seen above.
I did a quick test in my testing environment and this problem can be easily replicated. Just have to create an empty dashboard, connect it to a random board, save a filter, then impossible to permanently get rid of that filter.
That hiccup you’ve got is because it’s a dashboard in it’s own right and not a chart view on a board. Unfortunately, your best fix in this situation is to remove that widget to install a replacement with (or without) the filters as needed.

Hi Peta, thanks for the reply.
I’d be surprised to see this problem fixed before 2030 (if it ever gets fixed), so I’ll just put a band-aid over it by saving a new filter that doesn’t actually filter anything to overwrite the previous one.
