    Copy a value from Tableau

    David Schultz

      I know you can click a value in a grid and it pops open another window and then you can double click on that value to copy it, but is there any fancy way using action filters or anything to auto copy something to the clipboard?

       

      Here is the scenario I'm trying to resolve. I have an operational type dashboard that has a list of Order IDs. The users must take that Order ID and paste into another application one by one and do some action on it. Currently they just take the Tableau report, download the data into excel and copy and paste from there. I was trying to think of a way to avoid them from downloading the data by having them click one time on one of the Order IDs and it auto copying that ID in their clipboard so they can go directly from Tableau into the other tool.

       

      Any ways to do this easily?

       

      Thanks,

      David
