Editing Parameters

A dataview becomes handy for users if they can determine the value of certain filters. That way they can decide for which period they want to see events. You can achieve this by converting a filter into a parameter: parameters are accessible for all users, even if they cannot adjust the dataview. A parameter is created as follows:

  • In the dataview click on the “Edit Filter” button.
  • Hover the cursor over the filter that you want to make a parameter.
  • Click on the button with two brackets { }. It is to the right of the field for entering the value of a filter.
  • If desired enter a new name and a default value for the parameter.

Once the parameter is created, you can adjust or delete it by clicking on it and choosing the desired action in the menu.

When users open the dataview they can enter the parameters by clicking on the blue “Fill out Parameters” button.
