Each tab in the Universal Analytics dashboard (with the exception of the Active Users tab) contains a series of filters, which allow you to narrow down the charts, graphs and insights, as well as reports.
There are three types of filter in Universal Analytics:
|Filters that exist in multiple tabs on the dashboard.|
Filters that only exist in a particular tab. For example, the SURVEY filter is only used to add and remove surveys from the insights and reports in the Surveys tab.
Custom organisation-specific filters, created by the Fuse team during the customer on-boarding process. During on-boarding, Fuse allows customers to choose a maximum of 3 custom filters which appear across all relevant tabs.
An organisation might want to have a Department filter, which allows them to add and remove different departments from insights and reports.
