Issue

When using an action filter whose 'Selected Filters' are the dimensions in a hierarchy, activating the filter results in a blank worksheet when the source worksheet hierarchies are not fully expanded.

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

Instead of creating one action filter with multiple 'Selected Fields' dimensions, create multiple action filters each with one 'Selected Field' dimension.
