ResolutionEmbed the data source in the workbook.
CauseAfter a data source is published, calculated fields containing user functions such as USERNAME() are converted into non-calculated fields. This is to prevent users from editing user filters. As a result, Tableau Desktop can no longer generate the thumbnail as a different user.
Additional InformationTo voice your support for the inclusion of this feature request in a future product release, add your vote to the following Community Idea: Show thumbnails when a user filter is active in the data source.
