Issue

Action filter is not applied to the "Viz in Tooltip".

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Windows 10
  • MS SQL Server

Resolution

As a possible workaround, manually apply the action filter to the "Viz in Tooltip" target worksheet by following these steps:
  1. Click a mark on the source action filter worksheet.
  2. Open a worksheet targeted by the action filter.
  3. Right-click on the generated action filter and choose Apply to Worksheets > Selected Worksheet
  4. Check the box for the "Viz in Tooltip" target worksheet and click OK.

Cause

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.
