    Filtering across multiple data sources using a date field

    sheil.kataria.0

      Hello everyone,

       

      I have created a dashboard containing several different workbooks created using 2 different data sources. The dashboard shows various graphs and tables filtered using a single value dropdown date quick filter formatted as "MMMM YYYY", i.e. "October 2014".

       

      I can of course successfully filter all the charts from one data source by applying the quick filter to "selected workbooks" however I would like the filter to also apply to the workbooks using the secondary data source.

       

      I've tried using a combination of parameters and calculated fields to try and create a global filter such as explained on this VizWiz blog entry VizWiz: Create a global filter in Tableau across multiple data sources in eight simple steps - Data Visualization Done R…, however I was not successful on applying this method to a date filter.

       

      Can anyone help me figure this out?

       

      Thank you very much in advance for your assistance.

       

      Best regards,

      Sheil
