I'm not sure I completely understand the desired outcome, but it sounds like you have multiple maps with different colors based on the dimension on the color shelf on a dashboard and you want the user to be able to select one region and have it affect all the other maps. If this is the case, then actions can probably get you what you want. Here are a couple links regarding actions:
Hope this helps!
Thanks for your answer Tracy. Actually, I don't have multiple maps, I just have one map, and using filters, you can select a row in particular for Tableau to assign colors for each other region. Each time a region is selected (trough the filter) the set of rows for that region is selected. Made simple, tha table is something like this:
Region Selected Region Compared Color of Region Compared
Region 1 Region 2 Red
Region 1 Region 3 Green
Region 2 Region 1 Red
Region 2 Region 3 Yellow
Region 3 Region 1 Red
Region 3 Region 2 Green
Right now the dashboard works selecting the desired region through a filter. But I don't want to use a combo box filter, I want the user to click on a region, for the other regions to change colors.
I have been playing a lot with actions, but I cannot pull it off. Am I missing something?
Thanks for your help Tracy, I was able to solve my problem using Dashboard Actions
Can you help me, how you solve it?
I have the same problem. I represent bank branches in a country/city. There are five regions in the country:
Central, North-East, South-East, South-West and North-West.
I want to click in a region (not in a bank branch!), and show banks only in this region (hide other regions/banks).
Is it possible?
Maybe, i can realize it only with regions defined by me?
Can you post a workbook? I've found that using the map as a filter, and any include "Only relevant values' in the filter give good drill-down action.
I was playing with your workbook and added some new features:
1) I change the filter to unique value list. This allows you to filter banks by region. If you wan to select multiple regions at the same time, just change the filter type to Multiple values (List)
2) I created a new view or worksheet to display the list of banks by profit in a dot plot. I added min, max and quartiles band to be more informative at the time of comparing performance among bank offices
3) I added this new view in the dashboard and the Region filter impact both views: the map and the dot plot below the map.
4) I added some dashboard Actions: Highlight bank office in the map and/or dot plot if you select any of them on the map or the dot map.
Take a look at the attached workbook.
I hope this helps you to reach your goal.
Final recommendation: Open a new thread in the forum any time you have a problem or question. If this question is related to other thread, as this case was, go to that thread an add a post with a link to your new thread
