    Can parameters be used to select which datasource the dashboard should connect to?

      Hi,

      I have two data sources in my Tableau Workbook- Week and Month. I need to build a whole report on different time periods- Week,Month,Quarter, Year. Since all my metrics are the same, is there anyway i can use a parameter to select the data source that the dashboard sheets should connect to?

      Like when i select week, the dashboard should connect to the Week Datasource.

       

      I know we can use parameters to display different sheets in a dashboard, but i am going to keep that as my last option. Please let me know if this can be done.

      Attaching my Tableau Workbook.

       

      Thanks,

      Archana
