This is a very useful feature that allows users to select multiple chart types without cluttering the dashboard.
In this blog, I will demonstrate how to switch between multiple charts using parameters. For this task, I am using the Superstore dataset.
Step 1: Create three different charts. (Scatter Plot, Line, and Bar)
Chart 1: Drag and Drop Sales to columns and Profit to rows. Drag the Sub-Category dimension to Detail.
Chart 2: Drag and Drop Sales to rows and Order date (Month) to columns.
Chart 3: Drag and Drop Sales to rows and Sub-category to columns.
Step 2: Create Parameter – Select data type as String and Allowable values as List. After that, enter a list of chart types to switch. Then Click OK.
Step 3: Right-click on created parameter and select the show parameter.
Step 4: Create a calculated field and name it as Chart-Type. Then, Drag and drop the parameter into the calculated field.
Step 5: Drag and Drop the created Chart-Type calculated field into the filter and select Bar chart. (Current worksheets contain a bar chart and parameter selected as a bar chart)
Most importantly, repeat Step 5 for Scatter Plot and Line Chart.
Step 6: Drag a vertical container into the dashboard and add a title to the Dashboard. Then drag another horizontal container and drag all three worksheets accordingly. Hide the title and make the parameter float.
Now you have a dashboard with three different charts. Whenever you change the parameter control, you can see the selected chart.
