Why do you have two parameters? Just create one parameter and display the parameter control on both dashboards if you are using them for the same thing.

You have to link your parameter with your dimensions/measures. When you select any parameter value then your dimension/measure gets populated in your dashboards. And when you're using same parameter in multiple dashboard then it will automatically show the value which you've selected in first dashboard.
Lets assume you've created a string parameter like this. You can put the display values as per your requirement like 1,2,3.
It means when you select 1 from parameter then you're calling sales measure from your data source.
How to link this parameter?
You've to create a calculated field to call your measures.
Now show your parameter value calculated measure (Metric Value) in your worksheet.
Hope this help.
Hi sumesh Behl,
As above Mahfooj Khan informed you very clearly step by step.i think it is suitable for your requirement.
Please go through the below link and watch this video for the more information, you would get better and clear understanding.
My requirement is different.
I am using a 'paramter' which holds value 1,2,3,4. These values come from a Single field.
I am using this parameter in 2 dashboards. So i want a functionality like :- Lets say in Filters we have option of apply to selected worksheets.
In a similar way I am looking for an option for Parameters, to apply to multiple worksheets,
So that when i select parameter=2 from dashboard1,
then automatically parameter=2 is selected in dashboard 2.
Hope this clarifies the question.
As I said in my first post, create one parameter and use it on both dashboards.
I don't know how much I've understood your requirement. Tough as per my understanding you've created a parameter from a field. So instead of using a parameter why don't you use that field (Single field) as quick filter and make it global filter ("All using this data source") and make it "single value (list)"? Is there any specific requirement for parameter? correct me If i'm wrong.
I have created one parameter only and I am using it in both the dashboards.
Now what the requirement is, when i select parameter value = 2 in first dashboard, the parameter value = 2 should be automatically selected in dashboard 2.
So I was asking how to link the parameters.
If you have one parameter only, there is no linking which needs to be done. It's one parameter, so it's value will hold constant across dashboards.
Something obviously isn't clicking here for you, so in order for us to help you, you are going to have to upload a Tableau Packaged Workbook with some sample data and an explanation of what you're trying to achieve.
