Make Multi-Filters show all values by default


Multi-filters are really useful. But right now their behavior is not intuitive. I expect the filter to show me all the data by default. Only filtering out values when I intentionally select a values in the dropdown. Right now, Redash does this opposite: it shows no data until a filter value is selected.

I propose that a multi-filter should do nothing until the user chooses which values to filter. Or alternatively, allow the user to set and save a default value for a multi-filter in the query editor.


Is it posible to set Visualizations' default filter to Select All?

I figured out a workaround for this using Query Parameters. I wrote about it here.
