Highlight Action Set to "Dates and Times" does not Highlight Expected Values

Issue

No values are highlighted when running a "Highlight Action" that is set to "Dates and Times" on a target sheet. Additionally, the aforementioned target sheet contains a second date field wrapped in ATTR().

Environment

Tableau Desktop 10.0 and higher versions

Resolution

Right-click the ATTR(Date) and select Measure > Minimum.

Cause

The Date and Times highlight action can only act on one date field. The attribute of date is still a dimension, whereas the minimum of a date is an aggregation and will not affect the Highlight Action.
