Hard to say without an example packaged workbook, but have a look at this blog post to see how you can pass filters into the URL address.
Something to watch out for, if you are publishing a mobile version of this, the URL action will cause the user to jump out of the App and onto a browser version.
Thank you for your reply. Very helpful information.
I’ll look into it the first thing tomorrow and I will let you know how it goes.
Again, thank you for your help.
I've taken a look at this article. I have tried to follow the instructions in that blog but it didn't work. But this is exactly what I'm looking for.
One thing to note, we can't pass filter dynamically via URL. We can only pass parameters. So I had to create a parameter to control filters, then I can pass via URL. However, I couldn't pass some certain parameter. It must be something wrong over my side.
Anyway, thank you for your help.
I've figured out why it didn't work for me.
Basically, I have a dimension called Business Unit and I created a parameter based on this dimension with the same name "Business Unit".
When I pass it thru the URL, I didn't specify it as a parameter so it did not work. What I had to do is to specify it as a paramater: &Parameters.Business%20Unit=<Parameters.Business Unit>
The following won't work: &Business%20Unit=<Parameters.Business Unit>
Thanks for the follow up. Glad to see you got to a working outcome !!
