i think you have hit on your answer but not realised it.
the order of the actions in the action list is important, if you name them so that the action that takes the user to D2 comes lower down the list than the action that goes to D3 the filter will be applied to D3 but you will land on D2, then when you use your action from D2 to get to D3 the filter will apply in addition to the Filter from the D1 action.
I hope this makes sense.
Okay this is indeed the solution for problem 1!
Thanks so far!
Any solutions for the other two problems?
My advice on point 2 - you can multi select by dragging a selection area on screen around each part you want to include in the filter, i don't know the layout of your dashboard so couldn't comment on the viability of doing this.
The other option would be to use a multi select filter and Apply worksheets > All using this data source, then either create a goto next dashboard button - Tableau Tip Week – Wednesday: Dashboard navigation buttons! - The Data School
Or simply have the filter visible on each dashboard and the filter options will perpetuate through the other dashboards, if you are publishing to server make sure you select 'Show Sheets as Tabs'.
On the story point question, i'm afraid even though you have linked the dashboards when they are working live once they are in a story point they are a snapshot and applying a filter in story point 1 that should affect the dashboard in story point 2 will not do so, story point 2 will be as it was when you added it to the story.
Essentially if you are creating a story you need to pre filter any follow on points from an initial view, within the story point you can filter the dashboard you have embedded, but actions to other dashboards are ignored.
Probably not as helpful on points 2 and 3 i'm afraid.
See my example for the "layout" I´m using.
My filters are lists that are on own sheets each.
I´m checking out the link you´ve sent. Feedback soon.
I used "Dashboard navigation buttons! - The Data School " to successfully implement buttons to go to "Next Page" (Dashboard).
(So that solves problem 3)
The only problem there still is is:
Even though my "button action filter" is the last item in the action filter list Tableau takes the first selection I do and jumps to Dashboard two.
Is there a possibility to deactivate these automated jumps? I just want Tableau to transfer the selected choices / filters and then move on, on my own to the next page.
and: I can´t select two answers, e.g. countries on a map or a list.
See my updated example

Is there a reason these need to be on separate dashboards? would they not fit onto a single dashboard where the initial and next drill downs are hidden until you have made your selection?
What you need to do is set an action filter to filter the 'button', then go to the button sheet and set filter to apply to sheets in dashboard 2, then use the button to actually go there.
sorry it isnt based on you latest example but the functionality is there - essentially the button is now more of a apply filter button, meaning until you hit it you can use the ctrl (or cmd if mac) to select multiple value before applying that filter to the second dashboard - sorry i re built your second dashoard so it was easy to see i'd filtered in the correct states.

Perfect! This works for me!
Thanks a lot!
no problem, glad we got a solution for you in the end
