Setting default views when using "fieldname::filter" and "fieldname::multi-filter" in a query that's in a dashboard

I’ve seen several feature requests for default values, or saved values for query filters.
the need for that is especially dire when using the filter mechanism as a nested query parameter.
e.g. using the filter as a second level filter that gets its value set based on the first.
is there a way around it, it makes filters in dashboards useless without it

No workaround I’m aware of. Filters are not saved in Redash so there’s not place to save a default. They’re rebuilt by the front-end every time the page reloads. If this is mandatory for your needs then Redash won’t work for you.

But the filters do populate with the first selection, right?
can sorting solve this?
