Filter for Current User - View on Dashboard not working as planned

M_L ✭✭✭✭✭

Hello Smartsheet people,

I have a report that is pulling in all open tickets from a single source sheet, and I want the report displayed on a dashboard. I want this specific report to only show the tickets assigned to the current viewer of the dashboard.

The 'has current user' filter is on, and the column type is a contact column. Yet, my boss can only see my tickets, and nothing that she has assigned to her.

What am I missing? Or is this a feature of Dynamic view

    Check the Report widget Advance Options. If Widget editor is selected, everyone who views the dashboard will see your tasks since you created the Dashboard. If you want the viewer to see their tasks, you have to change the setting to "Dashboard viewer".
