This feature is implemented in Tableau 10: As Requested, You Can Filter across Data Sources in Tableau 10 | Tableau Software
In Tableau 9.x you can use several workarounds like use Parameters to show filter values with calculated fields that do the actual filtering.
I am using 9.2 now.
Based on my scenario can you please be little more specific what I should be doing?
Quick Filter 1 - 'Report Year' = [2013,2014,2015,2016] from Data source 1 when selected by user on dashboard should also be applied to sheets built using datasource 2(I have same field 'Report Year' = [2013,2014,2015,2016] in Data source 2 also available).
I tried following option 1 as mention is this article - Filtering Data Across Multiple Data Sources | Tableau Software
Issue is my [Report Year] is dynamic and comes from database, So next year the there will be '2017' but if I create a 'Report Year Parameter' based on option 1 mentioned in the article then I am not sure how can I handle 2017 scenario?
Any idea on how I can apply dynamic global filters to worksheets built on different datasource but have common filters like 'Year', 'State'. I tried using Parameters but they are static.
I am using Tableau 9.2
