Thanks for the additional information.
Whenever we have an option in the UI like this between “All vs Selected” and the “All” option is chosen, we clear any of the selections to avoid a host of potential edge-cases from a referential integrity point of view. For example, if we left those selections there but let you select “All”, then some of the projects were deleted, it could create edge-cases around missing data.
The dashboard configuration is saved against your user record, so a potential workaround is to create another user for yourself that has the dashboard configured for “All”, then when you’re helping another team-mate you can login with that user to see everything. Ie. user
tien is configured for those 12 projects, whereas
tien2 is configured to see all.
Alternatively, you could consider adding a uservoice suggestion. If your suggestion gets enough community support/votes, we will consider adding it as a feature in a future version of Octopus.
Sorry we can’t be of more help, but hopefully the multi-user approach may work for you.
