There are 2 ways to filter content in a report:
- within the report builder. filters defined here will affect the data that comes back from the database
- in the 'front-end' after the report has run. this approach is useful if you want to quickly exclude data you have already pulled back from the database (ie. to remove an outlier) or if you want to just get a quick view across a subset of results.

Select filter then the dimension you want to filter by. Then choose the value(s) you want to include or exclude.
You report will instantly update to show the data matching your chosen filters.
