Note 1: It is not possible to apply individual filters on Analytics Live Slides. This is because for the dashboard filters, the end-user is changing the overall filter of the Dashboard. As the “filter of dashboard” is a feature the system remembers per user, it will then apply to all dashboard slides that THIS user has in ANY presentation.

Note 2: It is only possible to add dashboard tiles, it is not possible to add existing dashboards of product type "dashbaord" in Manage Standard Dashboards and YouCalc Files.
