Bug ENH-000106987


Provide the ability to Select Parameter – ‘Zoom To’ within Filter Widget Configuration while working with Web App Builder.

Additional Information


Alternate Solution

1. Provide the appropriate/comparable step by step workflow to help illustrate the request.
Users want it to zoom to the records that are filtered, when the Filter Widget is applied.
In addition, user expect that when the Filter Widget is re-applied based on a field, it will zoom again to the newly applied filter.
2. What is the problem feature X is trying to solve? (i.e. What is the problem/limitation/design choice that is preventing the customer from moving forward?)
The problem is, the Filter Widget for the Web AppBuilder doesn’t zoom to the filtered records when you apply the filter. You must manually zoom to the area. And then when you manually zoom in to look at what you filtered, you can’t re-apply the filter to zoom to another field and move there from your current location. This is what our users expect the app to do. The reason being, you may have the name of the field, but not know where it is to zoom to it. Interestingly enough, the Web AppBuilder’s other filter, the Group Filter widget is designed to do zoom. It makes sense to me that the Filter Widget should do the same.
3. What are the benefits or changes that would result from the enhancement? (i.e. How does making this change help the customer's workflow or business?)
This change will allow the Filter Widget for the Web AppBuilder to zoom to a new location each time the filter is applied increasing the functionality and efficiency of the app and serve the purpose of the customer to immediately have the app zoom to what they based the filter on. This way users don’t have to wonder where the location is, spend extra time to find where the filter was applied, and then zoom there manually.
