Overwrite existing filter in Account – this options looks for a filter with the same name in the target Account, and if found, overwrite the filter definition with a new one. If the filter has not yet been linked to the selected View, a new link is created. This options is useful when you want the same filter everywhere.
Overwrite existing filter in View – this option looks for a filter with the same name in the target Account AND a link to the selected View. If you are saving to multiple Views in the same Account, this option will create a unique copy of the filter (with the same name) in the target Account with a link to a specific View. This option is useful when you might want different filters in some Views.
Do not overwrite existing filter – this option creates a new filter in the Account and links it to the View for each entry. This option is useful when adding a filter and do not want to mistakenly overwrite a previous filter that just happens to have the same name.
