Filter Related Menus Are Unavailable When Right-Clicking Pill Created By Ad-hoc Calculations From Tableau 2020.3

Issue

The Filter and Show Filter menus are not displayed when typing an ad-hoc calculation directly to rows or columns and right-click the pill from Tableau Desktop 2020.3. The issue does not occur in Tableau Desktop 2020.2 and older.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop 2020.3.0 and later.
  • Tableau Server 2020.3.0 and later
  • Tableau Online

Resolution

Create a calculated field including the desired calculation formula and place to filters.

Cause

This is a design change.  Because Ad-Hoc Calculations have not been supported in the Filters shelf, the filter related context menus are removed in Tableau 2020.3
