I currently have reports that exist in multiple dashboards, where I add saved filters to the dashboards to isolate for relevant information. When I click into any of the insight reports from a dashboard with saved filter, I find that Mixpanel will always append the filter to the report.
Is there a way to toggle this functionality? It seems counter-productive to provide the user a saved filter option and then carry that filter over into the underlying report; if we wanted the filter in the report wouldn’t we have just directly assigned the filter rather than applying it to the entire DB? I understand the filter isn’t saved but having to remember to clear it each time is an unnecessary add on

It sounds like the report that you added to the dashboard already has this filter saved. If you want to save a more “blank” version of the report then I would recreate the report and save it to your dashboard again.
We treat filters in dashboards separately from filters saved to a report for exactly the reason you called out. Many users may have a report saved in multiple dashboards, so dashboard filters do not affect a saved report.
