    Floating measures and dimensions in dashboard

    jorge.garcia.5

      Hello everyone.

       

      I came from the MicroStrategy World and trying to understand Tableau.

       

      In MSTR we can put any object on any place of the dashboard, for example, you have a workbook with 6 measures and you need to show every measure on a different part of the dashboard, we simple write {NameOfMeasure} or {NameOfDimension} and this is translated to the content of the measure or dimension and you can put that text anywhere with pixel-perfect location.

       

      Is there a way to do this?

       

      Until now I just figured out creating 6 workbooks with the measure needed and then add the workbook to the dashboard and move manually to where is need to live the content. But Im going to create hundreds of workbooks to create just one dashboard!

       

      Is there a way?

       

      Thanks!
