Filter by legend

Hi,

 

is there a way to use a chart's legend as a filter for the chart? It seems the only way to filter a visual is to use another visual (as you can edit the interactions between visuals, whether it filters, highlights or does nothing). But there is no option it seems to edit how a visual interacts with itself. So clicking on a legend highlights data on the chart, and there doesn't seem to be a way to change this to filtering. Any help much appreciated!

You can not change the click legend active from highlight to filtering, that would inconvenient when comparing the values in legend column. For filtering, you could just used the basic filtering type in the filter panel on the legend column.

Re: Filter by legend

@coopernicus yes clicking of legend will not filter the visual itself, and I don't think that is even a good idea. Not sure what problem you are trying to solve here.
