Option 1: Select one user to generate the thumbnail as, rather than a groupNote: For manually created user filter sets, the user selected in the Generate Thumbnails As User menu must also be explicitly included in the user filter set.
Option 2: Publish the data source separatelyFollow these steps:
- Create the user filter calculations.
- Publish the data source.
- Replace the connection in the workbook to the published data source.
- Publish the workbook.
CauseBy design, Tableau Desktop displays the generic "User Specific View" thumbnail when there is any ambiguity to prevent potential security leaks.
Additional InformationAll users will always see the same thumbnail.
After publishing the data source, calculated fields that contain user functions, such as USERNAME(), will be converted into non-calculated fields. This is to prevent users from being able to edit the user filters. This also means that the Generate thumbnail as user option will not affect the result of published calculations containing user functions.
