Did you get a way to achieve it..
I am also trying to do the same..
Yes, you can pass filters to a workbook using the URL.
For example the below URL generates a map of Superstore sales filtered by the category Tables:
You can combined multiple fields on a filter by separating the fields with a comma(no space):
Note that the Category filter will be updated according to the vales you passed in the URL.
Check in this link the List of Embedded Parameters
If your scenario includes multiple workbooks and you want to pass filters from one workbook to the other, probably is it better to integrate all dashboards in one workbook and use Dasboard Actions. If this case, take a look at this guide: http://downloads.tableausoftware.com/quickstart/feature-guides/actions_filter.pdf
I hope this helps.
