    Dynamicn global parameter controls multiple data source in single dashboard

    Yili Li

      Hello All,

       

      I am new to Tableau and currently trying to figure out a way to create some global controls (Date and few other data filters) to filter all worksheets(derived from different data sources) in the dashboard at the same time.

       

      After reading through couple posts, I think I can create a parameter and then calculate filed in each worksheet to achieve the goal through (Filtering Data Across Multiple Data Sources | Tableau Software ). however I am curious the parameter method mentioned in this post was meant to change dynamically based the values returned from the data source ? When I selected list option, is that fixed to the current list or would be dynamic if underlining data changes?

       

       

      any help would be highly appreciated!

       

      thanks,
