Using a button to change data fields and filters

Hi there,


I am hoping someone can help me with my query. 


I am creating an interactive view where users can chose what story they are seeing from the report, but I want to avoid creating additional tabs to view.


What I would like to do, is use buttons or drop down boxes for the user to chose options from, these then change what values are seen in the tables, what filters are present etc.


As an example - I have a table with two columns, owner and count. I am filtering by the Top 3 owner by count as well.

Group A1000
Group C800
Group E400


This means the field 'Owner' is in both the table values and filters.


I would like to press a button/chose from drop down, which then show the sum of count grouped by location, rather than owner. Also with the top 3 filter applied but this time for location.

Location A750
Location E600
Location M500


I have tried using bookmarks, but this only saves it at the filter level, not with the data fields in the table itself.


Is this possible to do? 

 I'm happy to switch to multiple datacards or other formats - I just need the counts to be easily read alongside the owner/location etc.


Thank you

@bh21 , You should create two separate table, with each top three, overlapping and then use them in bookmarks
