Deck filtering is supported which allows the users to add interactive filters which filters all the slides in the deck. The interactive deck filters make data exploration easier, also the deck filters are applied in exports so producing multiple reports, with different filters applied, is now more efficient.
Here we see an example of deck level filters added to a deck at the top of the page, the presentation view of the StoryCreator is shown in this image.
The deck level filters are created by the user per Deck, if saving a Deck the deck level filters are saved as a part of the Deck and loaded automatically next time the same Deck is opened.
Enable the Deck level filters - the Administrator
The Deck filter functionality is turned off by default in both existing and in newly created StoryCreator reports. To enable the Deck filter functionality, enter the StoryCreator Setup page, in the Decks panel tick the setting highlighted in the image below.

Note, when Deck filters are enabled, all users, both Administrators and Report users, can use the Deck filter functionality.
