    Action filter between two sheets

    Nishanth Jenifer

      Hi Friends

      I am new to tableau and I have got a requirement from my client saying that He wants to navigate from one sheet to another sheet based on the filter applied

      For Example

      1. Sheet 1 should have filter section with different criteria and different data source with filter button

      2. User will select/enter the filter criteria (such as date selection, multiple country selection, product code, top 10000 records)

      3. Click on filter button based on the selected/entered filter criteria and navigate  the sheet 2 with list of records

      4. Please help me to achieve this


      I am looking forward to your help

          You just want to navigate to next dashboard when you click on something on the first dashboard right?


          Here I have superstore workbook, when I click on a particular State my action should take me to "Customer" dashboard and filter customers belonging to selected "State"


          Then Create the Action Filter,

          Select Source and Target Sheets and views.


          Now I click on a State (Oregon in my example) and it takes me to Customer dashboard and filters all the views to customers belonging to my Oregon.


          Hope this helps. Attached workbook.

              If you need to switch between sheets using the filter, then you will need to lookup how to do a sheet swap with a filter.  If you really want to go from one workbook to another, then you will need a URL Action.  I seriously doubt that you want to do this.  Look into the sheet swapping if the action has to be on the filter.  A much easier thing to do is filter the current worksheet and then click on it to move to another sheet with this same filtering in place.
