Issues with public sharing,custom chart and filter

Currently I’m trying to replicate a dashboard we already have.I created few dashboards and saved in my personal collection. . I’ve a couple of issues as of now, might be more going forward.
Metabase version : v0.34.3
Database : Snowflake

  1. I want to share the Metabase dashboard which I created with others (iFrame ) who don’t have Metabase. Is there any way I can do that? Please help.
    I checked in Settings, all I can see is local host, is it possible to change that to a shared web site
    All I can see in Settings --> General is local host

In public Sharing option also, the link is showing as local host.

  1. In our current dashboard, which I’m trying to recreate in Metabase, have lots of custom charts. For example, I have a heat map (built in chart option in the other tool) and in Metabase heat map option is not available. Is there any way I can do it. Custom chart is one important option we’re looking for.

  2. Do we have common filter option available / can set up in Metabase? For example I have dash board with 4 charts which have few common fields (date / user / entity etc).is it possible to set up one common filter for all these charts? Ie, instead of creating separate filter for each chart, can I set up a single filer based on the common field and link to all the charts in that dash board?

a. If not is it possible to put the filter just above the chart instead of putting everything on top. For example if I have 5-6 charts in a dashboard and assume that I have filter on all these 6 charts. Currently all these filters are showing on top of the dashboard regardless of the chart which is linked to the filter. It’s allowing me to drag the filter, but where ever I put the filter its going back to the top part - as a raw all the filters appearing on the top of the dashboard.

  1. Currently I’m working on a chart based on a function (example query : select event_date, name, type from table(function_name(‘parameter’)). And I want to create a filter - ({{date_var}}) with variable type as ‘Field Filter’, function is not listed in the drop down list of “Field to map to” option. Is it possible to create a filter variable from the function instead of giving the date (event_date ) condition in the where clause directly.

Please let me know if you need more details on any of these issues. Thank you!

Can anyone please suggest on my issue - want to share the dashboard / question I’ve created in Metabase (localhost) with others who dont have a metabase account.
Please help.

Most of your questions have been asked many times - try searching the forum and Github first.

  1. If you want to share your dashboards, then you need to host Metabase on a machine that can be accessed by the people you want to share with.
  2. You can perhaps get part of the way with “Grid map”

  3. Yes, or maybe I’m not understanding what you’re asking for, but read the documentation:

  4. You cannot use Field Filters like that. You would have to create a sub-select and/or a lookup table.
