#WOW2021 W50 | Tableau: Can you recreate this drill down?


This Workout comes from trying to solve a challenge by two Data School Consultants (Theo & Chris). We started down one route but ended up doing a different route. I want to say there are probably two ways to solve this, but I didn’t have the time for the first route. So if you can do it both ways then bonus points for you!

Enjoy my last workout of 2021!


  • Dashboard size: 500 x 600
  • 2 Sheets
  • Drill down from Category to Sub Category
  • Line chart to update according to selection
  • Difficult part is getting the line chart to reset
    • For example if I select Office Supplies and then Art. The line chart should be that
    • But if I then go straight to selecting Technology the line chart should reflect that option instead.


This week uses the superstore dataset for Tableau 2021.3. You can get it here at data.world


When you publish your solution on Tableau Public make sure to take the time and include a link to the original inspiration.  Also include the hashtag #WOW2021 in your description to make it searchable!


After you finish your workout, share on Twitter using the hashtag #WOW2021 and tag @AnnUJackson, @ItsCandraM, @LukeStanke, @_Lorna_Brown and @HipsterVizNinja
