Issue

When using a slider on a range date filter in Tableau Destop and Tableau Server, the data does not reflect the correct information. 

Environment

  • Tableau Server
  • Tableau Desktop

Resolution

As a temporary workaround, create a calculation filed using the MAKETIME expression to date slider filter. 
  1. Create a calculated field using a formular similar to: MAKEDATE(YEAR([Order Date]), MONTH([Order Date]), DAY([Order Date]))
  2.  Add this newly created calculation to Filter shelf and select the Range of Date option.
The above calculated field can be found in the attached sample workbook called Maketime Calculation.twbx.
