How to keep the action filter when drilling down in a Date Axis.
For example, when selecting 2021 the view in the right will show the customer in 2021. But after drilling down to Quarter, the action filter will be cleared.

Answer

The ability to drill down of Date axis and keep the action filter is not currently built into Tableau Desktop.

As a workaround, please consider using Parameter action to create a Multi-hierarchical Drill Down Bar Graph, which could keep the filter and show the drill-down data.
The steps are listed in the article below:
[Multi-hierarchical Drill Down Bar Graph]

Please check the attached workbook for details.
