Just wondering if there is any feedback on this suggestion? Using Quick Filter controls to trigger Actions would be a nice elegant method of being able to filter many data sources simultaneously. I think it would be both intuitive and also quite powerful.
I'd like to get feedback on this topic too.
I'm facing the same situation.
If I understand you question correctly, this can be accomplished by (using superstore data as an example):
1. Extract data so the countd() function is available in calculated fields
2. Create a calculated field, let's use category, as "countd([category])" and call it "distinct category"
3. Create a quick viz by clicking on profit and category.
4. Place "distinct category" on filter shelf.
5. Right click and select quick filter.
6. In upper right corner of quick filter, select drop down triangle, then select "compact list"

Just wanted to let you know that your suggestion is valuable and we are listening. I'll follow up if I have any additional questions or maybe some possible solutions.
I'd love to reiterate this request. I have multiple data connections and need a way to filter all of them at the same time with filter actions (on a common dimension). The limitation with parameters is that they are single select. Plus the select list needs to dynamically update, based on the values in the dimension.
I also wanna circle back this question since I also have similar needs. I created a quick filter with a parameter of city list (about 300 cities), and would like to use it to not only filter some charts, but also highlight the city on a map (instead of filtering out all other cities). So instead of filtering the cities on the map, I want a highlight action triggered by the quick filter, and apply it to the map. Or is there an existing way to achieve what I want? Let me know. Thanks!
