Passing value from calculated field to a parameter

Is there a way to pass a value to a parameter from a calculated field without using a custom action? So that the parameter would just always equal the calculated field rather than having to click on a visual to make it work.

Hi, you can create a calculated field in data prep phase, and when you add a parameter in analysis, you can link the parameter with the calculated field. Curently calculated field created in analysis are not available to be linked by a parameter.


@emilyzhu what do you mean by “you can link the parameter with the calculated field” - do you have any pointers on how to achieve that please?

When you are creating your parameter control, and select “link to a dataset field”, calculated fields that were created in data prep are in list of available fields to choose from. But if a calculated is created in the analysis it is not available.
