You know how when you're editing a Dashboard, there's a "View Dashboard As: " field on the top right of the page?
Well, for several of our dashboards a previous admin had created, she had been listed as the View Dashboard as person. Naturally, when I de-activated her as a user, viewing the dashboard returned an error until I changed the "View Dashboard As: " to an active user.
What I've noticed, however, is that upon changing all the values for the custom dashboard filters we had created just disappeared!
The filter fields themselves are still there. So, for example, the custom Date filter on my opportunity dashboard is there, but the dozen actual values ("Next quarter", "last year", etc) have all vanished.
Is this deliberate, or should I be reporting this behavior to SF? Also, Is there a way I can recover these filter values without having to go through and repopulate them all?
