What I would suggest is to make a worksheet with the [Country] and [Status] fields on the detail shelf, filtered to "US" and "Active." You can easily set the label by making a parameter and dragging it onto the Label shelf. Then, you can use that worksheet as a button, passing the country and status values as an action filter. If you pass product as an action filter without [product] on the worksheet, it will reset other sheets to "All." The key to this is using the "Selected fields" option in your action filter instead of "All Fields."
Here's how I would set up the "reset button" worksheet:
When you pass the country and status values as an action filter, what are you listing as your values in the "Selected fields" section? I have [Country] in one data source and [Status] is in a secondary data source.
Having a secondary data source makes the problem a little different. Can you post a .twbx to look at?
It's possible to use different data sources in action filters, but you would have to have the "reset" worksheet set up with both fields to make it work. The Reset sheet may even need its own separate data source in order to achieve the necessary cross-data source filtering. It really depends on how your data and dashboard is set up.
Decided to go a different route altogether and create two separate sheets for what I needed to visualize. Thank you for your help!
Can you go into a bit more detail/upload a sample workbook of how you did this? Specifically, I'm wondering why the label has to be a parameter, and how to "use that worksheet as a button, passing the country and status values as an action filter."
Can you share the details of this.. how did u work on to make reset button work .. using two data sources
Thanks for the reply..
If you don't mind can you please share sample workbook. My dashboard filters are coming out of two data sources.
I know how to work on creating reset button when dashboard filters are from single data source, but not sure how to make the same from two data sources
Thanks again for the help
