After editing a workbook using the Tableau Online Web Editor option, the following error might occur when saving the workbook using the options File > Save:

"Unexpected Server Error"                      


Tableau Online 10.2.0


The above error message should no longer occur, a hotfix was deployed successfully and the issue is considered as resolved.

Should you still encounter the issue, please use the following workaround: 
  • Save your file using File > "Save as" (instead of Save) and keep the original workbook name.
  • Then confirm that you wish to overwrite the original workbook.
