Option to add filter as a page control directly

  • Describe Feature
    We tend to use page controls very often in our workbook, and a common use case is to create our charts/vizs/tables and then add the page controls after. However, the process to do this is kind of slow. To create a Page Control, we have to find the column, select Filter, then go to the Filter in the element, click Convert to Page Control, and drag it to where we want it to be. And then if we want to do this w/ multiple columns, we have to go back to the chart/table (since Convert to Page Control takes us away from it), and repeat the process for every column. Would be nice if there was an option to immediately create a page control out of a column.

Potential mockup solution:

  • What is the use case?
    Immediately creating page controls from columns

  • How often would this feature be used?
    Most workbooks we create would utilize this feature

  • What is the impact of this feature on your organization?
    Improved ease-of-use of page controls
