Tableau lets you quickly add and modify filters using Quick Filters. When you turn on a Quick Filter, a smaller representation of the Filter dialog box opens as a new card. From there you can quickly decide what to include in the view.
You can add a quick filter for a field that is not current used in the view. To do so, right-click the field in the Data window and choose Show Quick Filter. The field is automatically added to the Filters shelf.
