    When I alter the Time Filter Widget the date used won't persist and will reset when I leave and return to the page.  Additionally if I have automatic sharing setup then it will use the default time of 30 days.  Is there a way to have the Time Filter persist?

    I'd rather not have multiple versions of the same query where the only difference is the timeframe.

    Hi Patrick,

    You can achieve the functionality of setting default dashboard filter results by creating and using Explore Bookmark filters on your dashboards.  One of my colleagues has provided some helpful instructions on how to accomplish this in the comments of this article HERE.

    For your convenience I will list them below as well:

    This result was achieved by using a Bookmark filter. You can read more about how to use Bookmarks in Explore here

    Essentially the process is as follows:

    1. Filter to a timeframe 

    2. Capture this timeframe as the default using the Bookmark

    3. Hide the Bookmark widget from the dashboard


    Hope this helps with what you were looking for!

    Best Regards,

    Nhia Lor.
