Filter table then filter another table



I have 3 tables. There is a relationship that exists between the tables. See screenshot below. When I select '1000004085668' in Table 1 it filters Table 2 and Table 3.  This is expected behaviour and acceptable. 


I then want to select 'Job_source_Id' in Table 2, then it should filter Table 3.  BUT, when i select any row in Table 2 it clears all filters. Is there a way to FIRST filter Table 1 THEN i want to select a row in Table 2 that will filter Table 3. For example, in screenshot I have first selected '1000004085668' in Table 1, then I want to select '1000004085668:2' to filter Table 3. How can I do this?

Having the "Cross Filter Detection" option of your tables relationships "Both" allows you to do your filtering in both directions, can you try this setting? or you can ctrl+click on your all tables for filtering.

Hi @Chris1300 ,

You might try this using Edit Interactions.  Since I don't have your relationship on the tables, I am not positive, but give this a try.  Make the first table on interact with the second table, the second table only interact with the third table, and the third table have no interactions.

Let me know if you have any questions.

If this solves your issues, please mark it as the solution, so that others can find it easily. Kudos 👍are nice too.
