Issue

When making a change to a filter on a dashboard, you may encounter the following error:

We may have lost your last few changes.  Make sure they still remain.

The view then returns to the previous view before any change is made.

Environment

  • Tableau Server 

Resolution

Option 1
Upgrade Tableau Server to 2020.1.5, 2019.4.8, or 2020.2.2.

Option 2
If it is not possible to upgrade server, you can disable client side rendering by adding :?render=false at the end of the URL or by changing the complexity settings on the server (per the online help article: Configure Client-Side Rendering)

Cause

View complexity can cause issues with client vs. server side rendering. This is a known issue that is corrected in more recent version of Tableau Server.
