Issue

When many fields are dragged to the Label mark, not all labels are displayed.

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

Click Label and make sure that "Allow labels to overlap other marks" is selected on the label settings in the marks card.

Cause

Tableau may automatically determine some marks are too close to each other and not display their labels if "Allow labels to overlap other marks" is not selected in the label options.
