Dashboard filters allow you to narrow the scope of one or more reports on a single dashboard. By selecting values in the filter, you can change the values displayed in the report without changing the report definitions.
In case you have a parameterized report (that needs user inputs at run time), you can filter the report data by choosing parameters to see the changed visualization. Click Parameters icon to select parameter(s) you want to prompt on the dashboard. Click the Apply button after selecting parameters as shown in Figure 11.
