Question

How to synchronize sheets on a dashboard with a single page control.

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Answer

  1. Ensure all desired sheets have the same page controls. For more information on page controls, see Pages Shelf.
  2. Ensure that each sheet has the same level of detail.
  3. Verify that all page options are the same (for example, if "Show history" is enabled, all page controls need to have it enabled as well).
  4. On the dashboard, right-click the Page control and select Synchronized.

Additional Information

Note: There was a known issue in Tableau Desktop 9.3 which sometimes prevented the Pages control from synchronizing correctly on a dashboard. If you are using Tableau Desktop 9.3 and the above steps do not work, upgrade to Tableau Desktop 10.0 or a newer version. For more information, see Upgrade Tableau Desktop.
