All Web Page Elements Do Not Display in Dashboard Web Object

Issue

When you view a webpage in the webpage object in Tableau Desktop, some elements of the webpage might be missing. 

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

Option 1

Publish the view to Tableau Server. If the workbook is shared on Tableau Server, the dashboard web object becomes an iframe in browser, and the browser will handle the rendering. For example, if you open the Tableau Server page with Google Chrome, then Chrome will render the embedded web page as well, and the page will display correctly. 

Option 2

If you do not have access to Tableau Server, use a QT WebKit based browser to debug the webpage. 

Cause

Tableau Desktop uses QT WebKit to show pages on the dashboard web objects.
