Existing Functionality: Users often have to set multiple parameters, includes (Contains) and excludes (Does not contain), to get very specific results in reports.  For example, the Site Content Pages ranked report. Filtering the report details is often done when trying to display specific results for a Dashboard reportlet.  A filter may inadvertently include additional unwanted data when data for new items is captured and displayed under the previously determined filter.

Idea: Provide users the feature to single or multi-select items (ie keywords, pages, campaigns) for all reports where applicable.  This would allow users the ability to display specific results in the details without having to rely on maintaining filter.

This functionality already exists in several places, such as Site Metrics reports, Trended reports, and Data Extract

An alternative is to provide the ability to use full regular expressions. Its not for everyone so perhaps provide a check box to turn it on for a given filter (this is what UNICA does). This is more flexible than the suggestion above.
