I have some filters like Geography , products in one of our dashboard and I want to pre-select some of these filters dynamically depending upon which user views this dashboard.
For example , if the user from Germany logs in then the Geography filter should select Germany as it's selection similiarly if for Spain user it should show Spain.
I know from one of the data sources( user profile) which geography this user belongs but I dont know how to push this value in the filter ? Also we wanted to automate this filter selection to show the preferred selection for the user. If user wishes to , he can select another geographies , so applying user filter is not an option I guess?
Are you using Tableau Server or Tableau Online? If so, you can just use a URL parameter to select the filter. Filtering Views using URL Parameters | Tableau Software
I hope this helps.
