What about adding input fields to the dashboard widgets. Kind of like the text field but it is enabled for user input. This input field can be used in new column and new measure fields so that once the dashboard is set up the user can easily (without filtering) explore the data by entering different values such as if you had an input box for unit price. Then if you change it all the charts of total sales, revenue, etc. Will update to reflect what would happen if you increase the price by 10%. This will enable people to quickly and easily interrogate the data

Thanks for the feedback! This is something we'd like to get to in the future but don't have any plans for at the moment. We suggest checking out the visual Text filter on AppSource in the interim.

RE: input fields

I'd like to have the possibility that an end user (viewer) can capture a value which I can use as a variable for further calculation. I.e. User sets the % for cahnce of success which will be further calculated & visualized

RE: input fields

I need this type of capabilities, filter items by input fields.

e.g. I'm in charge of 20 stores's sales, I want to see result of all stores of it. I have a list of store ID of it, so I want to filter by those 20 store IDs once, not one by one.

RE: input fields

We need this feature to pass parameters to generate reports similar to BO.
