Description

Ability to add a field to filters by drag-n-drop directly into filter section. At the moment, in OBIEE and OAC we have to add to criteria and then add a filter on the column and remove it if it's not required for display. While it's not a nuisance usually, it is when we have a union report.

In a union report... when we want to add a filter, it gets added to the main select structure which needs to be same across all union views. If we have more than 2-3 views in union report, it quickly gets cumbersome.

User Experience would improve if we can add fields to filter view with a shortcut like holding CTRL+click or drag-n-drop into filter section.
