Using hierarchy filters

A hierarchy filter represents the data in a hierarchy. The filter consists of an expandable tree view, where the categories within the different levels of the hierarchy are represented by check boxes.

Hierarchy filter
Only rows containing values with selected check boxes remain in the visualization. For example, rows containing 2012, Fruit, and Apples are included in the visualization, but rows containing 2013, Fruit, and Apples are not included in the visualizations.
Note: Values that have been filtered out by other filters are indicated with gray text.

How to create a hierarchy filter is described in Creating hierarchies.


  • Select or clear one or several check boxes to specify on which values the visualizations should be based.
