HierarchyFilter icon - create hierarchies, browse your hierarchies and use them as a filter in your Tableau dashboards


Visualize, browse and interact with your hierarchies

The HierarchyFilter extension can interact with your dashboard through parameters that can be used in calculations, filters, and set/parameter actions. It also allows you to set a filter that can be used to limit the data in the hierarchy to the current node and all child nodes and mark selections of selected nodes and child nodes.

Changing the Tableau world in collaboration.

This extension visualizes flat or recursive data into a Hierarchy filter. Instead of having multiple filters in your dashboard, you can create a hierarchy filter with only one!

Clean up your filter pane and let users interact in a new way with dashboards
