You can use
- navigation buttons https://www.thedataschool.co.uk/niccolo-cirone/tableau-tip-week-wednesday-creating-dashboard-navigator-buttons/
- pass parameters to another sheet from one sheet
3. you can create a front end GUI using html or programming language where user enters parameters to tableau dashboard and embedded tableau dashboard in a sharepoint portal or any other portal.
I went through step 1 and 2 (3 being a bit above me for this). 1 looked like only implementation of dashboard buttons for navigation, and 2 looked like applying filtering through dashboard actions on the same dashboard. I may be missing something but is there a way to combine the 2 to get the desired result?
Thanks for pointing this out! I don't use the pause/refresh enough but in this circumstance I don't think it will give quite the desired results. Would the filters apply "Only relevant values" by chance with this method?
I found an example below. It's semi-less desirable because it commits and entire page to filtering. But the concept is neat. Where I highlight yellow they have small samples of worksheets tied to data sources and simply make them invisible. So the filters are real-time and work off relevancy of one another.
