From what you have mentioned, your simple solution seems to be a better solution here. But, of course it all depends on what you are trying to achieve.
You can look at another option where in you can do a union of all those sheets and still manage with a single action filter.
Good day Tina.
I don't recommend doing sixteen sheets, that would be a lot of churn. One possible way you could do this is to have your Excel list be a single list, like this:
You can bring this list into Tableau like this, so each cell is the URL:
Then you can set up a single sheet with a single URL action that works for each "cell" of your spreadsheet.
If you want, you can also use the "crosstab" unraveling pivot feature of Tableau to convert the data from crosstab form into the form I showed above! Then, it's a similar process once the data is in Tableau.
