Have you ever been trying to copy parts of your model or rebuilding your model and you had several filters you needed to replicate? My colleague Mark Nealey, a Senior Technical Architect with Apptio, recently reminded us internally of a great time saving tip I'd like to share with all of you.


Suppose you have 5 objects that you wanted to set several filters for, and they were mostly the same filter....

Or, maybe you are trying to copy parts of your model that contained a bunch of filters...

Rather than create them all from scratch you can use this little trick to replicate and edit.  In the Specify Filters window, you'll select the Copy all filters to clipboard button

Then in the Specify Filters window for the new object, you choose the Paste all filters from the clipboard option.

This adds all of the copied filters to your new object.  From there, you can edit or delete unneeded line items.

I hope you find this little time saver useful.
