          Hi Welly,

           

          In order to achieve this follow the below steps

           

          1) Duplicate the worksheet

          2) Remove the parameter filter

          3) Rename the sheet as 'ABC'

          4) Go to Dashboard

          5) Click on Floating in a container section

          6) Drag the sheet and place somewhere down

          7) Hide the title

          8) change the height and width to 1

          9) Publish to server

           

          So whenever the user clicks on download pdf automatically abc worksheet will get downloaded because of tableau downloads the worksheet which alphabetically first.

           

          or another way would be

           

          1) Create a value in a parameter called "All"

          2) Create a calculated field like below

          [Dimension to be Filtered] = [Parameter] OR [Parameter] = 'All'

          3) Drag the calculated field to filter --> Select "True"

          4) Publish the workbook to the server

          5) Copy the URL

          your URL look like below

          Https://server.com/<Site ID>/Report name/Dashboard name?:iid=1

          6) Delete a PDF Png image from the web

          7) Use the image container --> select the downloaded image

          8) Place the image somewhere on top --> click on the Image --> Select the Option "Set URL"

          9) URL box will pop up. Provide the URL like below

          Https://server.com/<Site ID>/Report name/Dashboard name.pdf?<Parameter.Paramtername>=All

          10) after editing the url click on --> republish again

           

          whenever the user clicks on the PDF image parameter all will pop up and all the category info will be downloaded

           

          Hope this helps kindly mark this answer as correct or helpful so that it will help others

           

          BR,

            Hi Welly,

             

            You could run a script with each variable of the parameter filter embedded into the URL code and append .pdf at the end of the URL to generate the pdf's in order to drop them somewhere, or alternatively embed the separate unique URLs onto your website somewhere for self-service.

            See the same link for advice about setting URL parameters.
