If no filters are defined, no dropdowns/filters will appear on the web part.
To use a column as a filter, you need to place it's internal name into the field.
To show a custom display name on the dropdown, place your text inside square brackets
To have a default value selected, add two colons after the interal or display name followed by the selected value.

e.g.: Dprt[Department]::HR, Topic::Web

Here is what you need to do on SharePoint to check the column's internal name:

  1. Access the Teams Settings


  2. Click on the icon to open the List.


  3. On the top menu, click on Library Settings


  4. On the Columns section, click to open the colum name you want to use

  5. Inside, on the URL look for "...Field=...".

  6. Copy the internal name


Open Filters On

Here you are able to choose how to open the dropdown, on Click or on Hover.

If enabled, a search bar is added to the top of the web part for filtering content. The search bar will always be enabled if any filters are set.
