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?
(I havn’t been able to get consistent results

I don’t think sorting will solve it because Redash sorts the values alphabetically, regardless how you sort them in the query.

I know it sounds hacky but I remember having inserted HTML null code (like ) in the beginning of a filter in order to solve this issue. I searched for it on 600+ queries on my Redash but unfortunately didn’t find it… :slightly_frowning_face:
