Add a filter

There are a few different ways to add a filter in Atoti UI :

Open the filters popup

The Filters popup can be accessed from the Filters tool or the Content editor tool.

When the Content editor tool is selected :

When the Filters tool is selected :

  • Drag a hierarchy from the data model into one of the Filters sections (This dashboard, This page, This widget).
  • Alternatively, you can also click on a hierarchy to add a filter on it. This new filter will be automatically added to the This Widget section, after any existing filters.

Add a filter using the filters popup

  • Open the filters popup.
  • Select the members you want to filter on by checking the checkbox next to their name.
  • You may select all members by using the Select all checkbox, or use the search to find specific members.
  • If you wish to apply an exclusion filter, check the Exclude selected members checkbox at the bottom of the popup.
  • Click Apply filter.

If you choose to apply a filter using a virtual hierarchy, you will not see the list of members when you open the popup as these cannot be loaded all at once. You should use the search.

Create a basic filter

Add an Advanced filter

  • Open the filters popup
  • In the top right of the popup, toggle the Advanced editor switch.
  • Use the form to select the number of members, scope, measure and type of filter you require. For example, you could limit the view to the top three currencies with the highest pnl.SUM using the "is the highest" option.
  • Click Apply filter.

  • Open the filters popup.
  • Click the Type or paste members button, next to the search bar.
  • Type or paste the members you wish to filter on. Each member needs to be on a separate line.

Add a date filter

  • You will see two different tabs in the popup: Tree and Calendar. Tree is selected by default.
  • From the Tree tab, add a date filter by selecting members, as detailed above.
  • Click Calendar to switch to the calendar tab.

  • Click Apply filter.

Create a date range filter

Add a rolling date filter

Rolling date filters keep up to date with today's date, instead of always being on the same fixed dates. For example, you can use a rolling date filter to always show data from the last 7 days, meaning the start dates and end dates will move over time. They can be added from the calendar tab of the filter popup on a single date, or a date range.

To add a rolling date filter:

  • Choose a single date or date range for your filter, in the same way as above.
  • Check the Rolling date range checkbox.
  • Click Apply filter.

Add a "Month/Quarter/Year to date" filter

Using the Quick selection panel on the left of the calendar, you can add a filter on Month to date, Quarter to date or Year to date. These filters allow you to filter on data from the first day of the current month, quarter or year until today, and they will automatically stay up to date with the current date. For example a widget with a Quarter to date filter on March 30th will show data from January 1st to March 30th, but on April 6th it will show data from April 1st to April 6th.

To add a Month/Quarter/Year to date filter:

  • Open the filter popup and choose the Calendar tab.
  • Click the button with the name of the filter you wish to apply.
  • Click Apply filter.

Add a filter using the "Filter on member" menu item


The ability to Filter on member or Filter on selection relies on a plugin. If you cannot find this in your application, contact your system administrator.

  • Right-click the table cell, or trace of a chart, on the member you wish to filter on to open the context menu.
  • Select Filter on member, for example, if you clicked on member "London" from the "City" hierarchy, select Filter on London.
  • You can then choose the scope of filter you wish to apply: This widget will apply the filter to the selected widget, Other widgets will apply the filter to all other widgets on the page and All widgets will apply the filter to every widget on the current page.
  • Alternatively you can apply an exclusion filter and filter on all members except for the selected one by clicking Exclude member, (for example Exclude London) from the context menu.

Filter from menu

Add a filter using the "Filter on selection" menu item
