Steph Locke shows how to use table parameters in rmarkdown reports:

The recent(ish) advent of parameters in rmarkdown reports is pretty nifty but there’s a little bit of behaviour that can come in handy but doesn’t come across in the documentation. You can use table parameters for rmarkdown reports.

Previously, if you wanted to produce multiple reports based off a dataset, you would make the dataset available and then perform filtering in the report. Now we can pass the filtered data directly to the report, which keeps all the filtering logic in one place.

It’s actually super simple to add table parameters for rmarkdown reports.
