Today, I will show you another method of swapping sheets using the navigation button.

The main difference between this method and the sheet-swapping method in my previous blog is, this time we are going to navigate from one dashboard to another dashboard.

As you can see in the dashboard below, I have two navigation buttons that allow me to easily navigate between different dashboards.

it’s a helpful way to quickly build different topics or stories without creating a parameter or calculation field.

Let’s take a closer look at how to create and customize a navigation bar on Tableau.


First Step

You will need to create a few dashboards. I have 3 dashboards in this example.


Second Step

Click and drag the navigation button under the object and then place it in the top right corner.



Third Step

Double-click the Navigation button and set navigate to the Suburbs Insights dashboard.

I will leave the button style as a text button for now. You can change it to an image button if you prefer.

Change the Title to ‘Suburbs Insights’

Change the background to yellow and set the opacity to 70%, click ok


Last Step

Repeat the third step to the other 2 dashboards.

Make sure you have one button for each dashboard on a dashboard view


In a nutshell, the navigation bar is a simple but powerful tool for navigating between different Tableau dashboards.

By following the steps above, you can easily create and customize your own navigation bar to make it easier for users to find what they’re looking for.
