    Show/Hide Labels depending on userid

    John Barrett

      Using latest version - & online:


      I have a group of Viewers that contribute their data to a common Chart (multi-line) - we union all the data.



      I would like to have all the lines in grey with no label - except for the data line belonging to the logged in Viewer?  They would have tier line in red with a label (details etc)


      I understand we can do 'row filters' using the user-id. Bit this is slightly different where all the rows are present - just the showing/hiding of labels & colouring of lines according to who's viewing the chart.


      Thanks in advance!

          Very hard to help without a workbook, John.


          In principle, you'd want a couple of calculated fields to set color and label text.  You'd have to a mechanism to tie the logged in user's Tableau ID to a specific subset of the data, though, so that you can determine what to do if the username matches the data.  Can you build a relationship somehow between the data behind each line and a set of users?


          I don't think it's impossible, but hard to give you much guidance without knowing what your data looks like.

            Thanks Michael,


            Yes we will have be adding the user ids to the data before it get's imported into tableau  - so confident we will have a link to work with.


            Point taken about no workbook
