Add Named Filters to Reports

Named filters are custom filters that refine search usage analytics data shown in each usage analytics card, such as table and time series.

With the required privileges, you can create sets of named filters to save time during the creation of a report. Once created, named filters can easily be added or removed from usage analytics reports. For more information on how filters can be applied and combined in reports, see Filter Settings and Limitations.
