How to hide data needed in an action filter

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop

Resolution

OPTION 1: Move the fields to Detail on the marks shelf


Please note that this solution may change the appearance of the view, depending on the type of view and the data in the field. For example if there is more than one value in the field per mark in the view, then Tableau Desktop may split the marks in the view.

 

 

OPTION 2: Hide column headers

 

1. Right-click on any field on the Rows or Columns shelf

2. Uncheck Show Header

This option will completely hide columns in crosstabs, but will only hide headers in other view types.
