Tableau Tip Tuesday: How to Filter a Dimension and Maintain the Rank

No comments
This tip is inspired by Craig Bloodworth, CTO of The Information Lab and Tableau Zen Master Hall of Fame member. Craig demonstrated this when an attendee at our Zen Master session asked how you can filter a dimension and maintain the rank.

I gave one solution which would show and hide dimensions, but Craig's is way way better. It's a neat way of using table calcs to filter a dimension since a table calc filter happens AFTER other table calcs are computed.

Also, in the video I reference our new meetup, Let's Talk Data. If you're in London, there will be tons of events at the new home of The Data School. If not, don't fret! We have some virtual events as well.

With that, here's the how you can filter a dimension and maintain the rank.
