Issue

After updates are published for a workbook, custom views are lost.

Environment

Tableau Server 
Tableau Online

Resolution

Use one of the following workarounds:
  • Change names of worksheets using web edit only, rather than Tableau Desktop. 
  • Do not change worksheet names. 

Cause

Custom views use the worksheet or dashboard name to map the custom view to the worksheet or dashboard it is based on. If the name changes, the custom view has no worksheet or dashboard to to refer to and is deleted.
