    Apply measure filter before dimension filter

    Wildman .

      Tableau normally follows the following hierarchy in case of filters: Context filters > Dimension filters > Measure filters > Table calculations. However, Is there any possibility to apply a measure filter before a dimension filter?


      Hence, in the attached workbook I would like that one first can determine the quantity threshold (so tells Tableau to only look at customers with a quantity between X and Y) and afterwards Tableau only bases the top sales on those remaining customers (which corresponds to the quantity threshold)? So the opposite of what the workbook is doing now: it calculates the customers with top sales and afterwards filter out the customers which don't correspond to the quantity threshold.
