Import Saved View - Filter

Options

Hi all,

 

A bit surprised this topic isn't here as it's one of the most common frustrations, similar to the post here. When importing from a filtered saved view there are a lot of cases of missing values.

 

We all encounter it, and the first time it takes very long to determine the root cause. We change the filters but then the view becomes bigger which impacts runtime of the action.

 

When a filter is applied on a saved view with page selectors it usually creates issues if other cells are populated for other page selectors. For exports there is a solution by filtering on the way out:

It would be logical that a saved view that is being imported is filtered in the same way. The filter is applied for all possible combinations of the page selectors. Not for the current selections and "enforced" on the other combinations.

 

All the best,

Maarten.

    We ran into this issue previously and the workaround is to remove the filters from the saved view with the following side effects :

    • Import actions take a lot of time to process
    • Now we get error messages that we cannot import more than 2^31 cells
