Waterfalls no longer dynamic?


I have a dashboard which features waterfall visuals (4 on a page)
Normally if the viewer clicks on a bar on one of them, it automatically filters the other 3

For some unknown reason this has stopped working and they now are only affected by using page filters
I don't think I've changed anything, nor am I aware that it's even an option to switch this functionality off (other visuals on other tabs are behaving normally)

Any ideas what might be causing this?

I'm sorry but I can't (aside from not knowing how to, the data in the report is sensitive)

A member of my team is also experiencing the same issue in an entirely separate report - so seems to be a bug (affecting just waterfall visuals)

I will report it via the link you shared - thanks!

Thanks, but FYI this is a report that has worked fine for months and nothing has been changed in that respect (also saw just after I posted that another forum member has posted the same issue)

I think there is a bug somewhere, since someone else in my team who also had waterfalls in her dashboard has seen the exact same thing happening
