    Access data source filters from dashboard?

    Joshua Gearheart

      Is it possible to access 'Edit Data Source Filters' from a dashboard?

       

      I want to limit the amount of data available to a calculation that's quite expensive, currently running over ~20,000 rows of data, and causing a bit of lag.  The workflow I'm mimicking is similar to what's discussed in this post:

       

      Distance Mapping with Radius Filter

       

      My workbook has a field called "Region" that I would like to use as a data source filter, but the selection will vary based on the user accessing the workbook on the published Tableau Server version.

       

      I see that it is possible to set a data source filter based on specific users in a Tableau Server configuration, but my company's instantiation isn't setup to work this way.
