Need to create a button as Filter

Hi There

Need your help to create a list of buttons as filters. I'm new to this.

So, I've a table with field as "Country" and it contains so many countries, here i need to group a specific list of country as a button filter as "APAC".

Under APAC Button i should have the following countries ('INDIA', 'JAPAN', 'KOREA'), when i click on APAC button, the table in same sheet should filter the countries mentioned previously.

Please help to create this.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks

you may define an Action in your button with set field Country  and Search String

('INDIA'|'JAPAN'|'KOREA')

A better way to handle this is to create an Inline Table and link it to source based on country.

LOAD * INLINE [

    COUNTRY, REGION

    INDIA, APAC

    AUSTRALIA, APAC

    UNITED KINGDOM, EMEA

];

Then either, create a list box to select the region or a button with an action to select in field

Hi Marco

Actually there is no grouping in data level for my requirement, so need to create custom group of filters may be with variables and on one click my entire dashboard should get filtered.

I hope my requirements is clear. Please help to suggest any best methods to achieve this.

Thanks
