Can you post a TWBX file and explain what you'd like to occur within that packaged workbook example? Its very difficult to understand what you mean with just a text description.
Action filters are created on the Filters shelf once the action is performed/initiatied. They have the prefix (and what happens is Tableau actually creates a Set based on the dimensions used for the Action filtering). Other filters, as you have observed, are regular Quick Filters placed on the Filters shelf by the developer.
Knowing that, what is it that you are hoping to accomplish or understand?
Those get there because you have actions (worksheet actions or dashboard actions).

This is the current KB article for creating Dashboard actions, if that is what you're looking for.
And another helpful link on Action filters:
I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, so please let us know if you can add more clarity about what you hope to accomplish.
Thank you Mathew, but If you check on my file, I have done all of that. I have defined my action filters like it is indicated in the links that you have sent me. But it is not enough.
You have not posted any files, so I'm not sure what you mean. Much easier to help if you do post a packaged workbook file.
Yes, I have replied but in a new post with subject : "About my ISSUE" I have attached the pkg file, perhaps I have attached in a wrong way. I have copied and paste what I wrote:
Hi guys and thanks in advance for your interest in my issue, HEY MATHEW!!! I have attached 2 files for you and somebody who want to help me.
The problem happens when I click on any value in the first dashboard.
If i click on any value for the first column in the tabular view on the first dashboard, and click on Go to detail, this show me in the second dashboard the details for a number of people equal to the value I clicked previously on the first dashboard, and works fine for any value for the first column on first dashboard, but when you try to do the same with any value of the other columns, doesn't change showing me the total of people in the second dashboard and persist working with the correspond value of the first column. So, it just work fine for the values in the first column.
As a result of this issue I need to do, after I clicked to go to details for any value of the other column (except the first) is in the second dashboard manually just check "1" in the button filter related with the column where I clicked in the first dashboard in order to get the filter for the correct number of people equal to the value I clicked previously on the first dashboard, and so on for values of the other columns.
The filter for faculties is sensitive to what I chose in the first dashboard, i mean I I clicked for any value for a faculty when I go to detail in the second dashboard you will see for the filter bottom just check this faculty (that's what i want to mean when I say "Sensitive"), but this not happens with the filter making reference to the columns.
Thanks in advance for all you can suggest.
