    Master filter for dashboard with multiple worksheets

    Nelson Bradley

      I have a dashboard that has 4 seperate dashboards viewable by the end user:

      • dashboard 1 has multiple data tables and multiple pie charts calculated on the percentage in the data tables.
      • dashboard 2 has multiple data tables and multiple bar charts calculated on amount in the data tables.
      • dashboard 3 all pie charts that are calculated on the percentages.
      • dashboard 4 is all bar charts that are calculated on the amounts.

       

      Here is my problem:

       

      I would like to create a master filter where the user selects single or multiple selections on the dashboard 1 data tables and the filters apply to all the dashboards in the workbook.

       

      Thus have I have tried to use the "Use as Filter" option on dashboard 1 on each data table, when  filter is selected it will apply the filter to dashboard 1 and dashboard 3, each one of them having the pie charts. But the filters are not to dashboards 2 and 4. I need them to if that is possible.

       

      I am really new to Tableau and this is my first project so any help that someone could give would be great appreciated.

       

      Thanks,
