I agree - this can be very painful. Even if it was possible to copy/paste the filter values across reports would be helpful. I would love to see a more object-based approach to using filters - define it once, use across multiple reports.
There are several approaches:
- Name your programs consistently so you can use Program Name STARTS WITH...
- Filter by Program Channel Type
- Filter by Tag. If you setup your tags right, all sorts of things fall into place.
- Create it once, then copy the report and use Save As.
All good approaches, Josh. But when you're filtering on values contained in the lead record, like country name, it gets pretty tedious to replicate these same filters across multiple reports. And creating a master is fine - it's the maintenance of these reports over time should the filters need to be changed.
