    Global Filter/ Search Object

    Maria Plummer

      Is there a way to create a global filter or search object within Tableau that would allow you to type a string and all the objects, fields, expressions comprising that string will be listed?

       

      Thanks.

          Hi Maria,

           

          There is no global filter or search object that quite works in this way, where it will return all fields, members, etc with the string typed. A global filter can be added for a specific field and the wildcard match quick filter can be used to return that member in a specific field on every page connected to that data source. However, that is about as close as we currently have to your desired functionality. This might be a good one to place under Ideas in the Community.

           

          Hope this helps!
