    Two separate date filters with only one data connection

      Hello Tableau Forums,


      I started working with Tableau a couple weeks ago and have so far been floored by how powerful (and confusing) the software is. I am currently trying to create a dashboard to display daily energy load trend for two specific days. I think the best way to carry out this comparison is to use a bar in bar graph that will display each of the days overlapping each other. The problem is I only have one data connection so I can only have one date filter. Surely there is a way to make two instances of graphs and filters, but use only one data source? An easy way out was making two worksheets using the same data connection and putting them on the same dashboard but I'd like to integrate them for better visibility and space conservation.



      The data is categorized into hourly load, with HE1 meaning the value between 00:00 to 01:00; HE2 meaning the value between 01:00 to 02:00; etc...


      Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
