    Adding sub-categories to a line chart

    Randy Kirschner

      I've come across a problem that I'm trying to figure out and I was hoping for some guidance. I'm not sure this is even possible in Tableau but I figured it can't hurt to ask. To make things simpler, I created a sample of my problem using the Superstore data source.

       

      I have a simple trended line chart where I'm showing profit of subcategories trended over time. I have 2 quick filters. The first is Category and the second is Sub-Category set to show only relevant values.

       

      What I want to do is give the user the ability to add additional subcategories as they see fit, even if those sub-categories belong to a different category. In the attached example, I would like to give them the ability to remove Chairs and add Phones. However, Phones is a sub-category of Technology.

       

      Is this possible? And if so how can it be done?
