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.

Before you begin

You must have a page open in designer mode.

For context selectors that display on a card, click the pencil on the card to enter Card designer.

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

    A dropdown list displays.
  2. Under Show on card, select Selector.
