    Help with Filter vs Parameter Competing

    Tyler Gibbons

      Hi There,


      I have been having trouble with filters in Tableau and was wondering if someone could help me. I'm like 99% there, just need some help with the final touch.


      Here is a screenshot of the data. (also attached)

      As you can see, there are 3 Programs in the programs column but also one row that is "global" - meaning this applies to all 3 programs.


      Here I have the program filter on for "Columbia" - and as you can see, it is populating the types of updates on the timeline. Great! However, is there a way that regardless of what is selected in "program", the "global" line items also appear? I want the global rows(or program = global) to always appear regardless of what program is selected. My problem as well that I don't want a parameter because it wasn't working when i was applying a filter from another sheet to this one because the parameter was different then the filter. I don't want to use a filter. Any suggestions??


      Is that possible?
