After publishing a dashboard from Tableau Desktop 9.3 to Tableau Server 10.0, some titles hidden by unchecking "show title" on quick filters, legends or parameters reappear after the extract is refreshed. Issue only occurs for filters that show on the dashboard but are hidden on the worksheet.


  • Tableau Desktop 9.3
  • Tableau Server 10.0.0 
  • Tableau Online
  • Salesforce


Option 1:

Upgrade to Tableau Desktop 10.0 and republish the workbook. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Desktop.

Option 2:

Use one of the following workarounds
  • Select "show filter" on the worksheet in addition to the dashboard
  • Select "show title" and use "edit title" to make the title appear blank or format as desired.
