Hi Ansgar, I'm pretty sure that this isn't possible unless you require that the user click on something in the dashboard before the dashboard title will appear. Would that be an acceptable part of the user experience?
You would basically need to create separate sheets and use action filters to adjust the titles, but this would be cumbersome because you'd have to update the names manually. There's no way to directly reference sheet or dashboard names in calculated fields.
So if I understand right there might be a way if a user clicks on the dashboard? Since I only need this information to be in the table and it does not need to be visible, just handed over via an action filter, this might be worth a try.
When you said "update the names manually", this means only for additional dashboards or every time this "feature" is used?
Thanks a lot.
Yes, but it's a pretty cumbersome workaround, and if you think you can get by without using it, I'd recommend it. Basically, you would create a secondary data source that contains the names of all of the dashboards. Then, you would create one sheet for each dashboard. Each sheet should have a different filter that keeps only one of the names. Then, you would set up an action filter that filters down to a selected dashboard name. When a user clicks on one of the sheets you made, it'll filter it down to the appropriate value, allowing you to get the dashboard name from that field.
