    Customize quick info based on the dashboard you're on

    Tobias Marty

      We developed a menu system for end users with Tableau. It basically consists of one worksheet which depicts a symbol and quick infos, that tell the user infos about the dashboard he is on. We have seven worksheets with "menu items" on every dashboard.


      What we now need is to be able to show information depending on the dashboard that is active.

      One option would be to duplicate the sheets depicting the symbols, but that means a lot of duplicated sheets, which is very difficult to maintain.

      The better option would be to somehow be able to tell which sheet is active and then select the quick info text that is shown, e.g. with a calculated field with if statements.

      However I can't find a way to tell me which dashboard is currently active.


      Is there any clever to do this?
