What determines field list for dashboard filters in Lightning?

I am using Lightning and have created a dashboard.  I want to add a filter or two my dashboard.

1. What determines the fields available in the drop down for filtering?
2. If I have multiple components from different objects (leads, and opportunities for example) does it only make sense to use a filter that has the same value across both objects?   In other words, if I want to use dashboard filters, should I be really making a dashboard that only has components related to a single object?
