Promoting Selections and Exclusions to the Search Field

The search field defines a first layer of filtering that sets the context for the view. The selection adds a more ad hoc and interactive layer on top of this. Interacting with the visualizations you might create a selection that you want to actually promote to your more permanent (and savable) search field.

To do so, you can click on the arrow icons in the selection panel. This will remove the filter from the selection and instead place it into the search field. The view will refresh, setting the new search field as the view's context.

Note that exclusions can also be promoted to the search field!
