Hi all, I probably missed a setting somewhere. But I'm unable to figure out how to clear or reset a date filter to no value after selecting dates? Of course I can turn the filter off, but the date values remain, so that when I go to turn the filter back on for something else, the dates still exist and I must have dates selected.
The attribute filters I can manually set back to "All" or similar. But what am I missing when it comes to dates?
A "clear all" would be great too.
Thank you! Screenshots are from ArcGIS Online.

I'd take the simple approach and remove the date filter moving it to its own filter. What you've created above is a group of filters that are intrinsically linked, not unique therefore you are asking the user to always make three choices.
Thanks for the suggestion, I'll consider this. They're setup to use "OR" and the user prefers to access them all in one click/one place. In Web AppBuilder, each filter can be toggled on/off uniquely while using a single Filter widget. So to really get around this, I'd have to use a unique filter widget for each date. Or refresh the page each time.
@BrittanyBurson - Oh and a workaround - currently, if you put the Filter widget (ExB) into a window, and when you close the window, the values got reset:
Note that this behavior might change in the future.
I recently enabled the 'Reset all filters' in the EB I have. This is really the only change I've made in the past few months. However I'm trying to figure out if this is related, but now I am commonly seeing 'No data' show in my filter options where as I hadn't noticed this months ago. It seems this is due to a lag because eventually options show up but for awhile I can cycle thru the filter options I have set and see 'No data' but I know there is data. Have others noticed this after enabling the 'Reset all filters' option?
The issue besides the lag becomes very confusing to the end user and therefor the app loses credibility. I just saved a version of the EB and disabled the setting 'Reset all filters' and I have not been able to get the 'No data' messages possibly once but nothing like when the 'Reset all filters' is enabled. This is really unfortunate because I was so excited about the 'Reset all filters' addition.
