Tableau Show/Hide Button

by Sijia Wei

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’


(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.)



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