Sorted Values are in an Unexpected Order When Using the Pages Shelf

Issue

When using the pages shelf and sorting the values in the view, then the values do not appear to be in the correct sort order

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Pages shelf

Resolution

Consider moving the dimension from the Pages shelf to the Filters shelf. A single-selection filter can provide a similar user experience.

Cause

The Pages shelf is designed to show a subset of data in context of the whole data set. Therefore, the view is sorted as if all data is showing.
