Issue

When using quick filters on multiple dashboards, some worksheets might appear blank although they seem to have no filter settings.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Quick Filters
  • The same worksheet on more than one dashboard

Resolution

Option 1

Ensure that quick filters applied to worksheets from different dashboards do not overlap and filter out all the data.

Option 2

Duplicate worksheets and apply the coinciding filters to different copies of the worksheets.
 

Cause

Quick filters applied on dashboards filter the underlying worksheets, which affects those worksheets in all dashboards in which they appear.
