Some of the lower-case letter input such as "t" in a text box in web object with a login page is interpreted as a Desktop shortcut and does not work as a password input on the dashboard.
"t" is interpreted as a shortcut to switch the panes from Dashboard to Layout at the left side of the screen.


  • Tableau Desktop 2019.4, Tableau Desktop 2020.1
  • Windows 10


Workaround is to copy the password text and use Shift+Insert to paste the password in to the field within the web object on the dashboard.
