I am relatively new to tableau and would like to be enlightened by you smart folk. Similar questions have been asked/answered regarding this topic. But as far as I can tell this question in particular has not been asked.
So I have 2 separate worksheets connecting to different datasources. I need to collate these sheets into one workbook. Then a quick filter needs to filter both sheets in the dashboard. (If possible a multi-select is required)
I am using a data relationship between the 2 datasources on [customer] field. My question, am I able to connect the [customer] fields in the different datasources via the field value aliases? For example in DS1 a [customer] could be using a value 'GGL' and in DS2 could be using a value of 'GL1'. I have set the default aliases as 'google' for both. Will they relate based on this set alias?
If yes, how do I 'connect' the quick filter on [customer] across both worksheets. This clearly cant be done by Right-click > apply to worksheets > selected worksheets.
Your help will be most appreciated. Thanks.
You could be able to do this using
Tableau 10 Cross-Datasource Filters.
And aliasing Dimension members works, too.
