Global search clears existing selections

I select Year and Month - my graphs show various dimension values like "Medical Doctor", "Nurse" etc.

If I go to Global Search and type "Medica" the "Medical Doctor" is shown as an option.  If I click and activate this the result is the Year and Month selections are removed.

I would expect the selection to be added because it is possible in the selected Year and Month.

Hi Adam - check out this link:

Qlik Sense Desktop - Global Smart Search (video)

I updated it with Patrick's suggestion (locking selections) including screenshots.

Hi Adam,

What you currently can do is to lock your selections, then they will remain.

Press the selection in the current selection bar and then the padlock icon.

Thanks, a great workaround but I hope it is not the way it is designed to work.

Re: Global search clears existing selections

Hi Adam-

This initial implementation of Search clears the selections and applies the Search selection. We will be improving the experience and make it "Additive", where Sense will incorporate the current selections into the Search Result with the new search term.

Thanks a lot!
