Use a Visualization as a Filter

You can configure a visualization to filter other visualizations on the canvas. For example, if you select January in a Month filter, you focus in on January in other visualizations on the canvas.

If a workbook contains multiple datasets and some aren't joined, then there are restrictions for how you can use filters. To use data elements of a dataset as a filter in the visualization of another dataset, you must join both the datasets, before using the data elements as filters. Any visualization that doesn't use the data element of the filter is dimmed.
