Action filter is not applied to the "Viz in Tooltip".
Tableau Desktop 10.5 and newer
Try one of the following workarounds:
Manually apply the action filter to the "Viz in Tooltip" target worksheet by following these steps:
Click a mark on the source action filter worksheet.
Open a worksheet targeted by the action filter.
Right-click on the generated action filter and choose Apply to Worksheets > Selected Worksheet
Check the box for the "Viz in Tooltip" target worksheet and click OK.
Duplicate the target worksheet. Use one for the filter action and the other as Viz in tooltip.
Use a 'Menu' action instead. A 'Menu' action clears your hover before triggering the filter and navigation. A 'Select' action retains hover until after the action is triggered, which resets the filter (as designed).
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.
