"Primer" for Filtered Views

Filtered Views now have “Primer”page as the default landing page,​ similar to the Dataset “Primer” page. As datasets grow larger, more and more curated filtered views are being created to support data exploration. A landing page for filtered views allow users to easily discover metadata and other useful information such as the data table preview, column level metadata, promoted content etc..​

To help acclimate to Primer pages on filtered views, check out the breakdown of a Filtered View Primer below:
