Data Table Filter

    Hi I just try the new data table in 11.1.6 but i am facing one big issue.

    When running the table and have the output in HTML if the user click on the filter of one of the columns he can search for item but once found this item can only be deselected. So if i have a list of 200 countries and i want to filter to see only 1 or 2 i need to deselect all the others one by one. I can not deselect all of them and then filter only the one i need. 
    Is this known behavior or am i doing something wrong?


    List without selectionif i select Belgium i get Belgium but i can only deselect it
    If i deselect it its changing the value to exclude Belgium.

    ​I tried too and there is *no such option for "Dselect All" and it's pain to deselect them one by one individually.

    That is a bummer, but I guess we can shrug it off as a "first release" gap in functionality.  I know it's not equivalent, but I've been using the Filter features in Dashboard widgets, and I really like the fact that they have an "Invert" option, so you select the one or two items you want to EXCLUDE, click the Invert checkbox, and you're there.  Perhaps a short-term workaround is look at possibly delivering your info via a dashboard?

    Hi Stoyka,
    You are correct. There should be a way to deselect all. We are working on making this available for the next phase of improvements. Thank you for the feedback.

    Thanks for submitting the idea. For,
    Number 3, the overall data table size doesn't change dynamically but you can change the table height when authoring.
    Number 4, you should be able to use custom column header text instead of the default one from data source. The property is called Column title label and it's available when the column title is selected. Hope this helps.
