    filtering across dashboards using secondary sources

    Megan Weis

      I might be asking the impossible - but what I'm trying to do is the following: I have the same filter on two different dashboards, but for some reason Tableau is not recognizing that they are related. I'm guessing it might be because I've aggregated some data within a calculation and am using multiple sources of data. I want the user to be able to exclude certain projects on the first tab and have that automatically filter to the second tab so that they don't have to filter the same thing twice. In the attached workbook I have an example - I want the user to be able to remove projects from the first three dashboards using the filter on "Project Names" (found at the top of those tabs) and then have those changes automatically update the "ROM - EPS" dashboard (which seemingly has the same 3 filters that can be found on each of the first 3 dashboards). Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks for your help!
