    Linking worksheets on dashboard to keep same sort order

    Eric Sondergeld

      I have multiple tables (worksheets) that have the same row labels (name of company). I'd like to give users of the dashboard the ability to sort on any column of any of these tables and have all the tables have the same sort order. This way I won't have to list the company name in each table but simply align them next to each other. Is there a way to do this in Tableau?


      Stephen Few, in his book Now You See It has a similar example on page 62, where he has two horizontal bar charts. In both charts the bars represent cities. However, in the chart on the right, he did not include labels but suggests that software should be able to support linking multiple graphs, allowing the user to sort the graphs in the same way.
