What about using a second view that just displays the values with the first view set as a filter?
Something like what @Jonathan_Drummey does here - Creating a Dynamic Range “Parameter” in Tableau | Drawing with Numbers
I hope that helps
It looks promosing. I will look into it when I can find the time. The users decided that the display of filtered values was the icing on the cake, which they can do without for now. It is still desired, but at the same time there are a lot of other dashboards they need to have build have as well.
I'm not exactly sure what Tableau does to pull the list of selected values when you do that in a title. But have you noticed that if you have 10 values selected, you'll get a list that looks something like this: "Canada, Spain, France, and 3 more"
Tableau doesn't give you a choice to override that format and list out all selected values.
But you can make your own list using the PREVIOUS_VALUE function.
There is a great example of it here:
(If that doesn't take you directly to example 15, you want to look at the last example there, which is example 15.)
It is not as much as I do not want Tableau to show me Canada, Spain, France and 3 others for the filter country, but that when I have another filter like Region and have that selected to Europe, I would like to only see Spain, France and 3 others when I have selected 'show only relevant values' in the filter. Currently Tableau still shows Canada as part of the filter in country when I use country as dynamic text in the title.
I will check out if the previous_valu function has any merit. Thanks for that tip!
Gudo -- The Previous_value approach will only show you what actually made it into the table that is underlying the sheet. You won't get any non-relevant values that way.
