Filter Insights by Values


In Analytical Designer, you can filter your data by values of the facts and metrics used in your insight. For example, you can display data that correspond to a specific value, fall within or outside of a certain interval, or are greater than the specified value.

The filter by value is available in all insights with at least one attribute or date (in other than the Metrics section), except Headlines, and is applied after the date and attribute filters.

You can use any local fact or metric (that is, any item already in your insight) to filter by its values.

Configure filter

  1. In the insight you want to filter, click the filter bar dropdown icon.

  2. In the Metric value section, select the fact or metric you want to use for filtering and click Apply. Analytical Designer adds the fact or metric to the filter bar. 

  3. Click the metric in the filter bar and select one of the logical operators. 

  4. Specify the values for filtering and click Apply. You can type numbers, decimal point/comma, and thousand separators based on your regional number format settings. For details, see Set Default Number Format for Your User Account.



Analytical Designer now filters your data according to your configuration.

The following image shows an insight before and after the filtering specified above.

Filter null values

Null values means that there are no data available. GoodData displays null values as - (dash). It differs from the 0 (zero) values.

When you filter your data and the target values include zero, you can decide if the values that are null are included in the final filtered insight by selecting the Treat blank values as 0 checkbox.


In the following example, the insight displays Average Check Size and the number of Owned Locations in different states and is filtered to display only the states with fewer than two owned locations.

The first image has filter with option Treat blank values as 0 selected and shows also states with no owned locations (null values).

The second image has filter with the option deselected and shows only states with at least 1 location owned.
