I have 2 different alternate states. Now I want to be able to pass field selections in state 1 to state 2 so that the field looks synchronized in one way (only state 1 to state 2).
I have no clue how to solve this challenge. Something like the function copying alternate states is what I am looking for, but I only for specific fields. Maybe a workaround with a variable is the answer?
I was recently trying to accomplish something similar in Qlik Sense and was not successful.
On sheet 1 - the app opens to default settings I have in a bookmark. The bookmark has 2 Periods selected in the field YearPeriod. The user then wants to use those selections to transfer to another sheet (sheet 2) where the selected Periods are compared (not added together) in a few other visuals. Therefore, on sheet 1 I was using the navigation button extension to set 2 variables that I planned to use for the default selections on sheet 2- one for the YearPeriod filter in 'state 1' and one for the YearPeriod filter in 'state 2' - then it cleared the selections in the YearPeriod field on sheet 1 and transferred to sheet 2.
What I found on sheet 2 is that the YearPeriod filters in 'state 1' and 'state 2' did not show the default selections - even though the variables had the values. If I toggled the 'state' on the YearPeriod filter to the default state it showed the value selected.
I am not sure why the variable I set could not be used as the default selection for the filter in an alternate state.
I hope this makes sense how I explained it and that someone can help. There are many extensions which have actions you can choose to make selections in a field - however I have not found one where you can make selections in a field associated with a specific 'state'. That is what I need to do.
