Question

How to add a parameter to the pages shelf to animate parameter changes.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop

Answer

The ability to add a parameter to the Pages Shelf to play through the list is not currently built into the product.

As a possible workaround, use Custom SQL to union the table to itself for each parameter selection. See the Community Ideas below and follow these steps:
  1. Add a [Multiplier] field containing each parameter value.

  2. Reference the [Multiplier] dimension instead of the parameter

  3. Place [Multiplier] on the Pages Shelf.
