This is a new capability in Tableau 10.3 but you can now check the Allow selection by category checklist at the bottom of the tooltip.
Out on the dashboard, once you have selected the hour settings for example, this makes it static. I ticked the include command buttons box too but yet to work out the full functionality behind these new features..
Congrats on a great viz btw
Oh hey, that's cool, I had no idea that was there! I'll have to play around with and read up on it. It does "freeze" the selection, but I have to be careful not to hover over another hour bar or it "loses" the selection. Still, this gives me something else to work with and try.
Thanks! (and thanks for the compliment on my viz)
Here is an idea, I do not know if it suitable for you ...
you can duplicate the (By Zip) sheet and apply the select filter on the duplicated version and keep the hover over the old one one, you can use (execlude all values) to hide the sheet when no hour selected ...
In the attached (twbx) I added sheet called (By zip selected) and make it on top of By zip sheet in the dashboard ... I also updated the filters to allow hide and show the sheets based on the action.
What am doing is that when I select hour I bring (By Zip Selected) up which has no hover effect, and when the user deselect the hours it goes under (By Zip) which has hover effect.

You may try this thing:
You can now hover and Click at the same time from the same source sheet to two different target sheets.
Hope it helps!

Oh, this is a really creative idea, thank you!
I will play around with this idea and see if I can get it all functioning, thanks again!
Oh this is also a cool solution. In this way, someone can pin a particular zip or hour, and also continue hover-browsing. This might be more intuitive for the end user to 'get' what's happening in the worksheet as well.
Thanks for taking the time to respond!
