Part I. Basic Dashboard Action (Using Global Superstore Sample data)
Link each visualization in a dashboard with dynamic title and filter

parameters. Let’s create a single visualization for multiple measures and apply
dynamic title feature in the visualization
This can be easily done by using parameter. First, you create a parameter by
clicking downward arrow under dimension pane. You will see “Create Parameter”
panel popped up.
In properties section, you change data type to string and click allowable values to
list.

Then insert Discount, Profit, Quantity, and Sales in to the List of values. Remember,
strings are case-sensitive in Tableau. You will see parameter at the end of your data
pane.
Drag region into Columns shelf and drag this new calculated field to the Rows
shelf. Go to parameter under Data Pane, right click and show parameter control.
You will see parameter control panel on upper right corner. Then double click the
title section then you will see the interface below. Click Insert and you will find your

2. Dynamic filter
You can use a filter action to make one of the views in your dashboard as the master
view. We first create two visualizations – filled map with country (dimension) and
shipping cost (measure) and a bar chart with segment (dimension) and shipping cost
(measure). Then create a new dashboard with two visualizations.
Then go legend header in the map – click downward arrow – select “use as a filter.”

3. Dashboard actions
Dashboard action is activated by hovering, clicking and displayed in tooltips
(https://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/pro/desktop/en-us/actions.html).
3.1. URL action is to link your visualization to the related URL address. Let’s say,
we want to link to a website providing worldwide country information to a map here.
https://www.countryreports.org/countries/World.htm
On your dashboard, go to Dashboard menu -> Action.

All you need to do is to select source sheet, paste your URL address and click test
link first. Next step is to decide whether you make the URL pop up when you hover
over the map (Hover), when you click certain area (Select) or when you make it
displayed in the tooltips (Menu).
Insert the above URL and click Test Link to check the website is up and running.
Click one country showing hyperlink in the tooltip. Insert your screen capture here.
