    Trying to create a landing page using Tableau Parameters in a URL Action

    Eric Marowitz

      Hi all, I am trying to create a dashboard which will have a dropdown list of other dashboards to act as a "launch" page.  On the launch page dashboard, I have a parameter displayed as a compact list.  Then I have another worksheet with a "go" button.  The go button works with a dashboard URL action that uses the parameter value to complete the URL to the dashboard the user picked.

      The problem I am having is I am trying to use a user friendly "Display As" value in the dropdown but actually pass the "Value" of the parameter in the URL string.  This is not working for me.  It works if I put the URL value I need in both the "Value" and the "Display As" but then the user unfriendly URL string displays in my dropdown and it is ugly.  I researched and tried using a calculated field but with no luck.  Am I missing something?   Thanks much!!  ~ Eric
