Widgets that come from the same dataset are faceted by default. Faceting means that when you filter one widget, all the related widgets are filtered in the same way. You can turn faceting on or off for each widget.
Now we will look at how faceting works with the number and chart widgets that we added to our dashboard.
In the Sales Pipeline dashboard, click the first bar in the chart that shows the number of opportunities grouped by account owner.
Notice that first bar is now highlighted and the results of the other widgets changed. Because of faceting, the number widgets and the other chart now show the results for the selected account owner only. Each of your widgets shows the same set of data from a different angle. Widgets created from the same dataset are faceted, by default.
Click the first bar again to remove the filter based on the account owner.
Notice that the results are now shown for all account owners.
In the chart that shows the number of opportunities grouped by stage name, click the first bar.
The Account Owners chart changes to show the values of the deals that each salesperson has in the selected stage. Because Mark is the only one that has deals in this stage, only he appears in the Account Owners chart.
To disable faceting for a particular widget, clear the Facet this lens option in the lens properties.
