Just select John in the filter and publish the workbook to server. Anytime user opens the dashboard, the filter will always get selected to 'John'.
Super. I will try this.

At tableau desktop level,
whenever you are selecting any quick filter value say in region -> central the output is based on central and if again another region value selected say East the output gets changed.
Now, if you close the file with region value "East" then if reopened then the generated view is based on "East" region.
Actually, whenever you are closing the report it is saving the state ( if you chose to save the save file ) and next time it is reopening the same state.
Tableau does not have any feature to trigger while opening up the reports.
Solution could be : If you have created the report and once saved then after reopening the same with region filter "East". Here, if you select other values and decided to close the file without saving then it will work as per your requirement.
At Server Level, users dont have facility to save the state. The file state in which file is uploaded that is the default state for all the users hence in this case it works fine.
Please let me know in case you have any issue in unuderstanding the concept.
