Add chart interactions

Turn your charts into interactive filters.

Chart interactions turn your charts into clickable filters. Viewers can click a dimension value in one chart to filter other charts on the page by the selected value. 

Brushing allows you to drag your mouse across a chart to select a range of values to filter by. For example, you can use a time series to filter your report by a time frame highlighted on the chart.

Try it out!

This embedded report has interactions enabled for the charts.

  • To filter the charts, click a Medium in the table or a Country in the pie chart.
  • To use the time series as a date range filter, click and drag your mouse across part of the chart.
  • To to select multiple values, use Ctrl + click (Command + click on Mac).
  • To reset the filter, right-click then select Reset Action
