Is it possible to display the SQL query variables "filters" in the chart card component instead of using the dashboard filters on top of the dashboard? Dashboard users usually have to guess which chart/visualization the filter applies to when all filters are at the top of the dashboard.
that's on the question view, share the question to your users instead of the dashboard
Thanks @Luiggi That's a good option as well but having more than 4 questions won't be a practical.
I would recommend that if possible you have dashboards where the same filters apply to all cards. This is easier to understand for end users.
If it is really not possible to do this, then you can indicate which filters apply in the names of the cards. In this case you may need some additional user training to help them understand how to drill into the card and apply additional filters there. Just make sure they can't save and overwrite the cards
@Nige_A, thanks for your explanation, I'm already doing that. A user made the question, and since I knew that Metabase does not support that feature on dashboards instead, it aligns all the filters at the top, I thought that it would be a good idea to be able to have at least no drill-down to find the question filters in the dashboard instead have those right on the question card because that confuses the users. Another thing that I think would be nice is to apply filters for each dashboard tab separately and not have the same filters in different tabs.
I think different filters in each tab is planned shortly.
Personally, I think having some filters at the top and some one each question is just confusing. Better to name the filters better or use a click action on a neighbouring question to provide the filter (I think that onyl works if you embed and hide the filter though).
Card level filters in a dashboard would definitely be a disaster for end users and lead to confusion at best and bad business decisions at worst, Tab level filters would work I think, I would see a place for them in some of our dashboards.
