    How to set 'default' data source filters for Published data source?

    Andrew Clapson

      Hey Tableau universe,

       

      I am looking for a way to specify a default Data Source filter for a Published Server data source. The idea is that I want to filter out certain rows by default, but allow the user to remove/override this filter if they wish (most people won't). The data source in question is a regularly-refreshed Tableau Extract from a SQL Server database.

       

      I'm thinking it would be the same sort of thing as a default number format or colour, in that it shows up by default but a user can choose to modify the format/colour if they wish.

       

      Has anyone figured out a way to do this? Am I missing something?

       

      thanks.

       

      Andy
