How to make an action filter that targets a viz in tooltip.


  • Tableau Desktop 10.5.2
  • Windows 10
  • MS SQL Server


  1. Navigate to the worksheet that contains the viz in tooltip.
  2. On the Filters shelf, right-click the Action Filter and select Apply to Worksheets > Selected Worksheets.
  3. Click the checkbox by the name of the worksheet being used inside the tooltip, and click OK.

Additional Information

Tableau does not automatically count a viz in tooltip worksheet as part of a dashboard when its parent worksheet is added. Therefore, the Action Filter must be manually set to affect the tooltip worksheet.
