I am assuming everything on tableau server.
you can create the hyperlink for detail report and put this link in the main dashboard. you can put an image ( such as Excel). when a user clicks on that image, he goes to detail dashboard.
There are many tutorials available online how to do this. Let me know if you need one.
Does the link pass filter information to the other report? The idea is that the user views a dashboard, then drills down to a list of items that make up a metric. The user then drills down on that item (i.e. links to the view in another workbook) passing it the item key so that it can pull up the details.
Would your method do this? If so, can you point me to the tutorials that illustrate this?
I appreciate your help.
