Context selectors display by default when you add a card with a view that has one or more dimensions on pages.

If you do not want users to change the context, you can disable a context selector, so that only the current value of that dimension displays. You can also hide a context selector so it's not visible to users.

You can display context selectors on all card types except for action cards.

You must open your page in designer mode. Select Edit this page

You can save your work at any time. Select Save to save as a draft. When you're ready to publish, select Publish.

The view you use to create your card must display at least one dimension as a context selector, or use a list that contains a hierarchy in rows or columns.

  • If you choose a view from Manage views or you design a Custom view, your view must have a dimension in Pages for the dimension to be available as a context selector. 
  • If you select a view that has a list with a hierarchy in the rows or columns, you can enable Hierarchy filter to function as a context selector. 

Enable a context selector

To enable a context selector, select Context selector settings > Selector.

To enable a list hierarchy as a context selector, when you configure context selectors for your card, toggle Hierarchy filter to the right. 

Disable a context selector

To disable a context selector, select Context selector settings > Label.

The name of the context selector displays as a label and users cannot view or select any other value. 

Hide a context selector

To hide a context selector, select Context selector settings > Off.
You can only configure the context selector if you toggle Show on card to the right again. 

Reset context selectors

To reset context selectors that are synced to the page, select Reset on the toolbar. 

To reset all cards on your page to the default options set by the page builder, select Page options > Reset page. On the Reset this page? dialog, select Reset.
