Hi Rachel. Thanks for the link. I see at the bottom it says "
- Right-click Date Range on the Filters shelf, select Apply to Worksheets, and then select All Using this Data Source."
Won't this only filter the one data source?
Here is a link to my similar thread in a different area: Another question about filtering on multiple data sources
I got some great help there, but I still haven't been able to answer my one question which is: Can Tableau create a date slider type filter that will work across multiple data sources?
I've created a date filter that applies to all of my views on my dashboard, but I haven't figured out if I'm able to change the formatting to a slider. Here is what it looks like now:
I'm sure I can clean up the formatting, but I would rather use a date slide if possible!
Following up here. Can anyone provide a definitive answer regarding filtering across multiple data sources using a Slider style date filter?
Hi Mark ,
Filtering Across different data sources is one of the frequent issues we have to go through. Fortunately tableau provides us a way to do that. From tableau 10.0 we can make a join across different data sources so all the filters will apply to all the data sources.But before tableau 10.0 , what we can do is take the help of parameters to filters data across different data sources.
Parameters apply through different data sources. Then we can create calculated fields in both the data sources , which can be made to act as a filter . I am posting the link of a video here , hopefully you will find that useful.
Please let me know if that solves your question.
