This week we are working on survey data for a client project. We have a fairly long list of filters to include in the viz for the demographic information that has been collected in the survey. A show/hide button enables us to provide a much cleaner view on the final dashboards.

Step 1: Drag a floating container on the dashboard

Step 2: Put a filter in the container (can be multiple filters / worksheet)

Step 3: Click on the little triangle drop down, choose ‘Add Show/Hide Button’

Done!

(Hold ‘Alt’ and click on the button to show/hide the content when you are on tableau desktop, you don’t have to hold ‘Alt’ if the dashboard has been published on tableau public.)

Show:

Hide:

You can also personalise the button in the way you like.
