Filter on cells with multiple values



I am creating a calendar on Domo with a dataset that looks like this. This dataset is imported from Google Sheet into Domo. 


Is there any way I can create a single filter, with all the countries name, such that when I choose a country, all events corresponding to the country will appear?


i.e. If I choose 'Poland', it will filter out all rows without 'Poland'.

    Thanks HTH for answering!


    In your solution, there will be many different filters for each country, one for Poland, one for Germany, etc, each with a binary outcome, yes or no.


    Do you know if there's any possibility to merge the different filters into a single filter? 

    Such that in this one filter, if I click on Poland, it reveals all events with Country LIKE '%Poland%'

    Hi mylee,


    sorry for not being entirely clear if you just set up one beast mode like


    when `Country` LIKE '%Poland%'
    then 'Poland'

    when `Country` LIKE '%Sweden%'
    then 'Sweden'

    when `Country` LIKE '%France%'
    then 'France'




    and put as many "when... then..." statements into the beast mode as you need, this will lead to one filter for everything. For added usability, I would display it as a quick filter too.




  • Hi Lee,


    you can try the LIKE operator in a beast mode calculation, such as

    when `Country` LIKE '%Poland%'
    then 'Poland'


    repeating the 'when... then' part for each country you have in your list (or may need) and then setting a filter on the calculated field.


    The '%' here serves as the placeholder to make sure it the condition is true when it contains the string 'Poland' anywhere.




    PS: Generally, I would advise against having several values in just one column, it would be easier (and potentially less error prone) to use a different way of storing the data. Difficult to say without knowing what your data corresponds to, though.
