  • You can filter on multiple dimensions, but if you choose values that do not occur together in the data, the report will display no data.

  • Turning off the Simple report filter toolbar doesn't turn off the filters.

  • Simple report filters are stored with the report when you save it (so leave the toolbar turned on it you save it with filters).
