You can use filters to specify the data you want to see in dashboard reports.
Available filters vary from one dashboard to another. Some filters are already applied to show you relevant data for the selected dashboard. You can change the values selected or select other conditions to broaden or restrict the data shown.
All selected filters are combined to determine which data is included in the dashboard reports. For example, if you select is in the past 7 days in the Start Date filter and is equal to Dr. Smith in the Practitioner filter, you only see data from the last 7 days for Dr. Smith.
📌 Note: Some filters may be required to load a dashboard. If this is the case and you have not selected a filter, a warning message is displayed.
1. From the main menu, click Analytics and open the dashboard (see Viewing analytics dashboards).
2. Select or enter the desired value for each filter. There are different types of filters:
