The filter component lets users input values, which can then be used with other components. In a Space, the filter component is commonly used to filter multiple tables on a single criteria -- unlike a search box in a table, which only applies to that table.
Ex: You add a filter component called “Company Name” that filters the Employees, Orders, and Inventory tables in your Space to find records for a specific company.
Name this filter: Choose a name for this filter component. When configuring other components to interact with this filter component, this is the name you’ll use to reference this particular filter component.
Set this filter’s placeholder text: This text will be displayed within the filter component. This can be used to instruct users as to what this filter component is for.
