The Dimension Filter enables you to focus on specific set of data. For instance, only the data from one datasource, a specific campaign or only of a certain publisher.
ADD DIMENSION FILTER
- Click on the blue filter icon in the filter section (right-hand side):
- Alternatively you can open the Dimension Menu by clicking on the dimension name and select Filter
- Add values that you want to filter on
- Click Add Filter if you want to add another dimension to be filtered on
- Example: Datasource is Bing Ads AND Campaign is SalesPush
- You can add an infinite amount of AND filters to specify which data you want to display
- To finalise, select OK
Tip: Use the Select All | None shortcuts
If you apply one Dimension Filter with several Dimensions (example above), only data matching both of them is displayed (AND operation).
If you create several separate Dimension Filters data matching either one of them is displayed (OR operation).

When applying a Dimension Filter to a given Dimension, you can define the logic of the filtering. In addition to filtering Dimensions based on exact matches (is:), it is also possible to employ logic such as:
- Contains: Values that contains a given criteria
- Starts with: Values that starts with a given criteria
- Ends with: Values that end with a given criteria
STEPS TO DEFINE FILTERING LOGIC
