Hello,

I made a multiple choice field "searchable" in the settings of filters, meaning it should appear when searched and it should be a filter to the left of my table.

But it still won't make it into a filter on the left side of my table, it is just a multiple choice field with three options. Any help?

Additionally, I want to keep another field "searchable" but not have it be a filter. For example, I want my users to be able to look up they project, but not have a huge list of 100+ projects in the filter section next to my table.

When you configure the report, there is a section to choose which fields to use as Dynamic Filters.

How do I configure the main report? Because every time I try get the dynamic filters to how I want then to be, I adds them to a new report instead of the main one. How can I get it so the dynamic filters will show up in the main table instead of another report that my user will have to click into

If you want to configure the dynamic filters for the "default report" (which is likely still be used as your Table Home Page report, go to

Settings for that table
and then reports and charts (in the middle)
and then way up at the top right "reporting defaults"
and then Default Report Settings
