    Dynamic Selection of Quick Filter

    Sai Manikanta N

      Hi All,


      I have multi user work book where I select single name and publishing. but when ever I log in with other user name I'm seeing Filter as "(NAME)" .


      Is any way to select first value as filter(Selected) in Tableau. In my drop down I can see only relative fields and only issue is Selected value is not changing

          Do you want user to see only data with their name in this column ?

          if yes then use below calculation as Filter in your sheet:


          username() = 'column name'



          if No then if you want user to select a name on run-time then :

          create a parameter with all the names and add '*' as an extra name.

          then use below calculation as filter:


          if parameter = '*'

          then 1

          elseif parameter = 'column name'

          then 1

          else 0



          now select '*' as current value in parameter and publish the report
