In Tableau Server 10.3.x and prior, dashboards created in Tableau Desktop with an empty floating container in front of another layer on a dashboard, then published to Tableau Server, would allow you to click through that empty floating layout container. Tableau Desktop would not allow this behavior, but Tableau Server would.

In Tableau Server 10.4.x and above, the behavior of Tableau Server was aligned with the behavior of Tableau Desktop and this functionality was removed.


  • Tableau Server 10.4 and above


There has been a change in browser rendering on Tableau Server to align with Tableau Desktop.
