    How to use Group as a dashboard action filterI

    jenn.ng

      I have a csv file that looks like this:

      animal,country,cost

      cat,USA,26.17

      kitten,UK,16.5

      dog,USA,31.36

      puppy,CAN,25.21

      lion,UK,13.22

      deer,USA,45.86

       

      I want to create a hierarchy where i can group animals into bigger categories such that upon clicking of the categories, the 'animal' sub category will appear.  i dont know if i need to use hierarchy for this since group by works as well. Attached is my tableau workbook with my data and what i have done.

      This is my raw plot before adding in the group by:

      This is after group by, where i set action = clicking on a group to show animals

      This is my dashboard. If i click on the 'cat and kitten' group in the treemap. why is it that only barchart of cat appear in the other sheet? Shouldnt it be cat for 1 bar chart and kitten for another bar chart?
