Option to select multiple options in a filter

Not sure this already exists in PD or not.
While doing filters, why can we not select multiple options at the same time?
For ex: if you want to filter Organizations in different industries, we need to create a condition for each option. Can we have an option to choose multiple industries at the same time? 

We currently have a single option drop-down for the Industry field. But while doing a filter this is a hassle.

    Hi @Support , thank you for your feedback! 

    Currently it's not possible to select multiple options in a single filter condition, but you can save yourself some work by using conditions like "is not empty" (if you want to cover all possible options) or "is not" (if you only want to exclude a minority of the possibilities - does the same as including the majority of the possibilities).

    I've made sure to forward your suggestion internally for consideration.

    Hi Ines,

    Thanks for the reply. We have around 50 different industries. And for the salespeople to do calling require to edit the filters more often. rearranging and clicking in/out of these options is really a hassle. Thanks for sharing this to your internal team.

    We have the same problem and this would make a lot of our filters much more readable. We would love a feature like contact industry "is one of the following" where multiple options can be entered.
