    Tableau Slider

    Sandeep Verma

      Hello All,

       

      Is there any way to merge the slider on dashboard?

      For example:

       

      Sheet1 - Showing Sales number month on month basis by product

      Sheet2 - Showing MOM by product

       

      We need to add these two sheets on dashboard and slider should work together as product range are same in both the sheets table.

       

      Please share if you have this experience

            Hi Shin,

             

            Due to data privacy I can't upload the file. Let me explain the situation

             

            Table1:

             

            Product     Year          Revenue

            A                 2001           100

            B                 2001           110

            C                 2001           120

            D                 2001            130

            E                 2001            105

            F                 2001            115

            H                 2001            125

            I                  2001             135

            J                 2001             113

            K                 2001            123

            L                 2001             133

            M                 2001            143

            N                 2001            153

            O                 2001            163

             

            Table2

            Product      Year           Sales

            A                 2001           100

            B                 2001           110

            C                 2001           120

            D                 2001            130

            E                 2001            105

            F                 2001            115

            H                 2001            125

            I                  2001             135

            J                 2001             113

            K                 2001            123

            L                 2001            133

            M                 2001            143

            N                 2001            153

            O                 2001            163

             

             

            Now I have created two sheet

            Step1. Sheet1 showing value for year 2001 and Sheet2 for year 2002
            Step2. Added these two sheets on dashboard and set floating for both

             

            Desired output in Dashboard should look like below:

             

            Product      Revenue    Sales

            A                 100           100

            B                 110           110

            C                 120           120

            D                 130            130

            E                 105            105

            F                 115            115

            H                 125            125

            I                  135             135

            J                 113             113

            K                 123            123

            L                 133            133

            M                 143            143

            N                 153            153

            O                 163            163

             

             

            We don't want to do this with table union. If there is any way to add these two sheets on dashboard and can combined the slider for both the sheets.

            Means if we scroll-up or down the slider both sheets data should scroll-up or down together.

             

            If this give an answer to your requirement, please share your thoughts

              If union is not an option, you can use data blend. Product is your key field which you can combine both tables.

                There is no vertical slider option until now.  Only horizontal.

                 

                Trying to show 5 each.

                 

                 

                 

                 

                 

                 

                Thanks,

                Shin

                  Hello Shin,

                   

                  Thanks for your quick reply it works.

                   

                  However, I have 2 more items to add into this:

                   

                  1. How can we fixed the number of row to be shown, means it's working fine to display the 5 row but down the line we go below it's start shrinking.

                  2. Is there any way to display the relevant values in parameter. let's say we have one more column parent product (Electronics/Mobile/Home Appliances). So based on filter parameter should show only relevant product values?

                   

                  Thank you very much...
