    Tableau doesn't support LIKE in action filters  :-(

      I had hoped Dashboard Action Filters could handle calculated & multiple conditions, but seemingly it is not possible.

       

      Question:  Is it possible to filter on similar names based on a formula similar to the one shown below?

      This is the design of the dashboard where I cannot make "similar name" to work, because action filters cannot handle calculations as the one which is needed (see screenshot above):

      See a simple mockup in attached workbook.

       

      Ps. I assume this is a good one for the  Ideas  section.
