Filtering in Tableau using Cut and Paste [VIDEO]

Posted by on Oct 15, 2012

I’m filing this example under ‘simple but awesome’.  In many of the training course we run, we are finding that very few people are aware of the great functionality  available within custom value list filters – they support CUT AND PASTE!

 

This video shows how this simple trick can be used to support Ad-Hoc report filtering based on a list of values you might receive within an email or in Excel.

 

Hope it saves you some time!
