  • Context Filter helps to pass the values to the filter from one level to other related(Subset) level.

  • In Tableau, Context filter creates a subset of data. We can create context filters by placing a field on the filter shelf, Right click and select Add to Context.
    If context filter is present then other filters are applied on this subset of data.
