Issue

After you make multiple selections in dependent filters, the view becomes blank.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Multiple dependent filters (Show Relevant Values is selected in one or more filters)

Resolution

Select All in the top-level filter before making secondary filter selections.

Cause

Filters are hierarchically dependent. The secondary filters will not automatically be cleared when a new selection is made in the quick filter at the top level of the hierarchy.
