When a workbook is published to Tableau Server, the date fields are formatted differently then they are when viewing the workbook in Tableau Desktop. 
For example : Tableau Desktop shows DD/MM/YYYY and Tableau Server interprets as MM/DD/YYYY.

Environment

Resolution

Verify that the OS date format of the computer running Tableau Desktop is the same as that of the computer(s) running Tableau Server.
