Action Filter on Tableau Public Not Functioning As Expected
Published: 28 Oct 2016
Last Modified Date: 20 Feb 2020
IssueAfter publishing a workbook to Tableau Public that uses Action Filters, the filters redirect to a new window and do not filter the data as expected.
This behavior is not experienced in Tableau Desktop or when the workbook is published to Tableau Server.
ResolutionAfter publishing the workbook to Tableau Public,
- Navigate to the workbook and click "Edit Details"
- Select "Show Sheets as Tabs".
CauseTableau Server and Tableau Public handle action filters differently. Publishing as tabs works around this difference.
