Looks have been created which utilize filtering.

Is there anyway to expose these filters for use outside of opening the Explore option?

Hey there Tim! Just to clarify, so you want to have filters so users can sort of filter as they see the results? This can be done through an API. Using the API and linking the embedded looks and putting it to an admin portal on your company’s website, you can create interactive charts. You can read more about API here, https://docs.looker.com/reference/api-and-integration/api-reference/v3.0.

I have seen some amazing charts developed by 3rd party companies where they come in to put such interactive API dashboards. Perhaps this could be something to explore for your company? :slight_smile:

Also, if you’re not embedding these looks, you should be able to just see the filters on the look itself and be able to edit them there under the Filters dropdown like in this screenshot:

Oops! I thought he meant he wanted an interactive dashboard. Therefore, embedded looks is the only way to go. But if you’re looking for ways to filter your looks, then izzy is right!

Still a cool idea and good info! :slightly_smiling_face:
