    Hide parameters in tableau

    Mohanraj Ramalingam

      Hi All,

       

      I just want to know is there a way to hide the parameter in tableau dashboard based on the selection in other parameter in the same dashboard.

       

      Regards,

      Mohan

          Hi Mohanraj!

           

          I'm not sure what you mean by "hide the parameter". Do you mean that you want to remove the parameter control for Parameter B, if a certain selection is made in a different parameter (Parameter A), or do you want to remove some options from Parameter B, depending on the selection of Parameter A?

           

          It is possible to create a "sheet selector" to hide controls using a floating worksheet. You can find more information on that solution here:

          Please let me know if this does not address your issue!

            Hi Sara,

             

            Thanks you very much for your kind information. As you have already

            explained the problem which i need to solve is that I want to remove the

            parameter control for Parameter B, if a certain selection is made in a

            different parameter (Parameter A).

             

            Consider this example, where Parameter A has two drill down values. First

            one as "Last 4 Weeks" and the second one "Custom date". There are two

            parameters like "Start Date" and "End Date". So, In Parameter A, if i

            select the value as "Last 4 Weeks" then my other two parameters "Start

            Date" and "End Date" should be hidden in the dashboard. When i select

            "Custom Date" in Parameter A then both "Start Date" and "End Date" should

            be visible.

             

            Let me know is there any solution to solve the above mentioned problem in

            tableau.

             

            Anyway, Once again thank you very much for the details.

             

            Regards,

            Mohan

              Hi Mohanraj!

               

              I think that Jonathan Drummey's solution on this thread is what you're looking for:

               

              Re: Show/Hide Filters Based On Sheet Selection

               

              There is an attached workbook which demonstrates his solution.

               

              Cheers!
