The new Board filters give you the ability to overlay a filter to an entire Board, making it easier to precisely filter your Boards without having to add the same filters to every Card.
The Board filters you set will apply to every item-based Card on a Board - i.e. Item List Cards, Improvement and Project Curve Report Cards, Impact Report Cards, and Attribute Report Cards.
