    Apply Action filter across all Dashboards

    Rajini S

      Hello All,

       

      How to apply action filter across all dashboards. I have attached sample dashboard and here, the filter is working only to that dashboard. My case, the filter should affect all the dashboards. For ex, if I select East in Dashboard 1 and it is not affecting Dashboard 2.

       

      How to apply action filter across all dashboards.

       

      Best Regards,

      Rajini

          Hi Rajini,

           

          I am not able download and check your workbook due to our network setting, but I would like to mention a couple of things :

           

          1. If you are using data from the same data source in all the sheets of both the dashboards, then you can do the following - On the quick filter select Apply to Worksheets and then select "All Using This Data Source" in Tableau 8.0 (in 7.0 you can turn the filter into a Global filter).

           

          2. If the data is coming from different sources, then you would have to create a parameter and use the parameter in the Filter (using the "Condition" tab in the Filter options.

           

          You could try one of the above options to apply filters on different dashboards. I would not be able to comment further as I am not able to view the workbook.

           

          Hope this helps.

           

          Thanks,
