    Mimic Measure Name filtering for Dimension Columns

    Reginald Green

      Hi Everyone,


      I was wondering whether there is a dynamic way of adding and/or removing dimension columns to a tabular report similar to whats available for Measure Names?


      Basically I am wanting to have a multi-select checkbox filter which will enable users to specify what dimension columns they want to see in the report.


      Thanks in advance.

          Hi Reginald - currently I am unaware of any way to do this in Tableau. Your only solution would really be to look at a parameter to accomplish this, and it would only deal with a single dimension at a time. Furthermore, this would not be dynamic.


          This is probably a good one for the ideas section, though if we had multi-value parameters, it would solve 90% of this, minus the dynamic part, so you'd be required to set up a calc in the beginning.
