You can include the target views in the first dashboard and hide them (floating them and setting X/Y, height/width to 0 works well, or floating them under another object works well). They will have action filters applied, so when you switch to the second dashboard where they are visible they will be up-to-date.
You can find the state filter action in the Dashboard 1 target worksheet's filter shelf.
Right click on the action in the filter shelf and apply to worksheets choose dashboard 2 target sheets.
if you are not clear please let me know, I will attach a sample workbook..
Joshua's solution works well, this is the typical approach I take when I face your situation.
You just need to include your worksheet in the 1st dashboard, make sure it gets filtered in these actions, and set it to floating with a size of 1x1 (or 0x0 if you can - but I can't).
When you go to your dashboard 2, where your worksheet also exists (but visible this time), it will have the filters applied.
Thanks for the response everyone.
I applied the state filter from the map worksheet to all of the dashboard 2 sheets, but it didn't work. Perhaps I'm missing something?
I also added the map worksheet to dashboard 2, made it a filter, and sized it so it isn't visible but the map in dashboard 1 (the map I actually want to be the primary map to select states) and the map in dashboard 2 aren't linked-- one does not affect the other.
I must be doing something wrong... How can I post my workbook so you can see what I'm trying to do?
That is exactly what I want.
What the world am I doing wrong? I'll compare to yours and check it out.
Ok great, I am looking at your dashboards and since it got too many sheets I can suggest a simple example.
Dashboard 1 got a state filter action and I want to apply the same in Sales by Product in the Dashboard2
Go to Dashboard 1 -> any target sheet which has action ( I chose sheet Pie)
Right click on Action State or Province -> Apply to worksheets -> Selected Worksheets
Now when you click on a state in Dashboard 1, Dashboard 2 Sales by product also will change.
hope this will help you!
There it is! Thanks!
