Working with Multiple Sheets in an Amazon QuickSight Analysis

A sheet is a set of visuals that are viewed together in a single page. When you create an analysis, you place visuals in the workspace on a sheet. You can imagine this a sheet from a newspaper, except that it is filled with data visualizations. You can add more sheets, and make them work separately or together in your analysis.

The top sheet, also called the default sheet, is the one on the far left. Each analysis can contain up to 20 sheets.

You can share analyses and publish dashboards with multiple sheets. However, scheduled email reports only include the top sheet in an analysis.

Use the following list of actions to work with sheets:

  • To add a new sheet, choose the plus-sign ( + ) to the right of the sheet tabs.

  • To rename the current sheet, choose the name of the sheet and start typing.

  • To delete the current sheet, choose the delete icon beside the name of the sheet.

  • To copy a visual to a new sheet, choose Duplicate visual to from the on-visual menu. Then choose the target sheet. Filters exist only on the sheet that you create them on. To duplicate filters, recreate them on the target sheet.

You can use the parameter controls on the top sheet to control multiple sheets. To do this, open each sheet you want to work with the parameter, and add a filter that uses the same parameter used in the control on the top sheet. Or, if you want a new sheet to operate independently, you can add parameters and parameter controls to it that are separate from those on the top sheet.
