Fiscal Year Displays Incorrectly in Published Views

Issue

When published to Tableau Online or Tableau Server, views that use fiscal year data incorrectly display the data with calendar year instead of fiscal year. For example, Tableau Desktop reflects "FY 2020 Q2", but the same view reflects "2020 Q1" in Tableau Online.

Environment

  • Tableau Online
  • Tableau Server 2021.1.0

Resolution

As a workaround, add the URL parameter "?:render=false" to the view. For example:

https://us-west-2b.online.tableau.com/#/site/yoursitehere/views/Workbookname/Sheetname?:render=false

Cause

This issue is currently under investigation by Tableau's development team.
