Join Nate Makdad for an in-depth discussion in this video Actions, part of Creating Interactive Dashboards in Tableau (2015).
- So actions allow viewers to interact…with your Dashboard and let them explore the data…by focusing in and highlighting or filtering…specific elements and then making that data…stand out across charts.…For our Dashboard,…we've got quite a few different charts,…different regions and countries.…We can add actions in so that as people…maybe click on a particular chart…or a particular country,…it's going to highlight that information…across all of the charts to really help draw that data out.…What I want to do here is I'm going to up to the…Dashboard tab and then under the Actions…I want to Add Action.…
I'm going to do Highlight.…You could do a filter where…it's just going to filter down the data…but I want to keep those other reference points.…I really just want to Highlight.…I'm going to go ahead and hit Highlight.…Then I'm going to do Selected Fields.…We don't really have a Year across all of them…so I'm just going to pick Country,…Field Selector and…Region.…Go ahead and press OK.…I'm going to press OK again.…Now you'll see when I click on Europe here…
