    Tableau forgets the filters I put in place after I added a dashboard action

    Farshad Rastgouy

      In my viz I have two maps: a regional map of the uk and a more detailed one.

       

      I have had to add some specific filters to both maps to display the right information. I have added a dashboard action that when you select a UK region filters the more detailed map to show only the local government districts in that region.

       

      However if I were to select a region and then unselect it to see the entirety of the detailed map, Tableau forgets the filters I put in place like "Earnings Type", "Year" and "Working Pattern" and so the map doesn't go back to what it originally looked like.

       

      Does anyone know how to fix this?

       

      Here is a link to the viz: https://public.tableau.com/profile/farshad8523#!/vizhome/UKSalary-3/Dashboard1?publish=yes

      I have had to add all necessary the filters needed to bring the map back to the way it originally looked, but I don't like the fact that the user has to use this feature and I feel that it can be confusing and looks clunky.

       

      Thanks in advance
