Tableau Tip Tuesday: How to Use Actions To "Reset" a Chart to the Most Recent Date

This week’s tip is based on a tip written by Richie Fanti back in 2013 when he worked for me at Facebook. In essence this tip shows you how to use a dashboard action to “reset” a chart to show the most recent date after you clear the action. It’s a really useful technique when you want the default view to be the most recent date but you want the user to be able to see details for a specific date when they click on it.
