There are so many ways that might be done depending on the data that it's really hard to answer without some specifics. It could be:
- A quick filter
- A parameter that drives a calculation
- A parameter that drives a filter
- A parameter that drives a sheet selection (Creating a Sheet Selector for a Dashboard | Tableau Software)
It's all going to depend on your data and your ultimate goal. Do you have a mockup? A packaged workbook (.twbx) would be best.
