Hi,

I'm developing a dashboard using ArcGIS online. Here, I want to use spatial filter option to filter all my indicators. 

Ex: If I select a region, I want to filter all indicators spatially. (not by fields)

Any ideas??

There are a few ways to do this.

First, you should be able to do this when configuring your map frame in the Dashboard. Under Layer Actions, scroll down to turn on the "Additional selection tools" and choose your method of selection. For the layer that you want to select and filter from, scroll up and expand that layer which will currently say "Active targets: 0". Expand the filter section, and you should be able to click the Dashboard elements that you want filtered based on this spatial selection.

Another method is to create a selector in the headers section of the dashboard. When you create a selector in the headings section, set the layer to be your regions layer. Then go to the Actions tab and under the Filter drop-down, you can set each indicator to be filtered spatially based on what region is selected in the selector when someone is viewing the Dashboard.

Alternatively, you can filter your indicators based on the current visible map extent under the "Map actions tab". You would turn on the filters in this section the same way above. The only downside of filtering them this way is that your map extent will be bound by the rectangular frame, so if you are trying to filter based on a more abstract shape/area, this option wouldn't work as well vs. one of the other 2 above.

Hope this helps!

Thank you.

I tried it. But it didn't work. Are there any special configurations to be
set?

@PasinduWickramasinghe  If you are using the first method (within the map frame configurations, using Layer Actions and the "additional selection tool"), you have to first set up the filters under Layer actions for your layer of interest and THEN turn on the additional selection tools. Sorry I forgot to mention that! And then your map will come with a little selection tool in the top left that you can use to select features/regions on your map and have the associated indicators be filtered based on that selection.
