An example of marked change after leaving a comment with it:
Levels and Filters
Customers/Products/Locations have structure of Reporting Levels. The side panel Levels provide the space to let you switch to another reporting level.
Note that the elements in filters may vary depending on the selected level.
For example, when Product Level is at SKU, which is the most granular level, the elements shown in Product filter includes all SKUs, plus all the group products (below left). When the product reporting level is at Product Family, only product families are displayed in product filter (below right).
Restrict Product filter with selected customers
In a dataset, there might exist thousands of products, which could be overwhelming when looking at product filter. But considering usually a customer only orders a few products, it makes sense to only filter from the products that the selected customers are associated with.
For example, we only select customers in 'Own Label' group.
Then, in Product Filter, at the bottom, there is an option Restrict by Customers. Switch it on. Then the elements left in Product Filter becomes the products that are associated with 'Own Label' customers.
In this side panel, there are two areas:
You can choose which reference data to include in this page's visualizations.
