Go to Dashboard at the top of the workbook (with the dashboard open in front of you), Now go to actions. You've probably checked 'use as filter' on the initial logo sheet so that you have something that says filter generated. If not find whatever action you've manually created and change this. When you open the action dialogue there is 4 sections.
Source: This is the sheet that you want to click on to cause the effect. Choose the logo sheet
Target: This means what sheets do you want to effect. Choose only the sheets that you wish to be filtered, (uncheck it for the sheet 1, 2, and 3)
Run on: -Set this to Select
Clearing Selection: From what I see here you need to select 'show all values' This means when nothing is selected it will show everything.
Now create a new action - this time a highlight action. The highlight action will accentuate certain areas instead of filtering them. You should choose the logo sheet as your source and then everything will most likely work as the targets for this action. Cannot be certain without really seeing the workbook though.
Thank you so much for that! You have no idea how long I've spent trying to think of the solution.
I am having another problem in this. The second dashboard in my visualization has a webpage link, which goes to a url, based on the team logo I select. The webpage works perfectly while I am working on the visualization on my Tableau on my PC. But when I upload the visualization onto Tableau Public the following 2 problems occur -
1. The window doesn't even show. One has to go to address bar and select the "show unsafe script" or something option and then the window appears.
2. Even when the window appears, it then shows an error like this -
Grateful for any help on the same please.
I am attaching the Tableau Visualization in the attachments and the link of the visualization is this - https://public.tableau.com/profile/datactician#!/vizhome/TheSportsLeaguesofUSA/Story1
Thanks in advance!!
At first glance it seems like a browser issue or a security feature of the
browser. I've not encountered this before. The URL link currently seems to
be a link to your profile on tableau public.

I thought it was a problem with my browser only, but apparently it's there even if someone else checks out this visualization too. That is why it's bothering me.
I don't know why the tableau viz link in my post isn't right though, but if it goes to my profile, the 2nd viz "Sports Leagues of USA" is the one I am talking about if you get the time to check.
Thanks though. Guess I'll just remove the webpage part.
