Issue

When using a continuous date field, data points in line chart might not connect to one another.

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

  • Remove any discrete fields from level of detail. 
  • Filter any nulls, or display them at default position. 

Cause

  • Discrete fields on Detail will separate the marks into discrete marks rather than continuous lines.
  • Nulls will show as gaps in the data unless filtered or displayed at default position.
