Unable to Navigate to Target Dashboard After Clicking a Filter Action

Published: 14 Jul 2017

After first loading a workbook or published view, and attempting to trigger a Filter Action, then nothing happens and the view does not navigate to target dashboard. The Filter Action will function as expected after manually navigating to the target dashboard or worksheets, and back to the source dashboard.

Additionally the source sheets and target sheets use different data sources, and the Filter Action options are set to 'Selected Fields'.


  • Tableau Desktop 10.3 and 10.3.1
  • Tableau Server


Option 1

Upgrade to Tableau Desktop and/or Tableau Server 10.3.3 or 10.4. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Desktop and Upgrading Tableau Server in Tableau Help. 

Option 2

Try the following workaround:
  1. Create a blank sheet that uses a field from the target data source
  2. Place this sheet on source dashboard


This behavior is related to a known issue (ID: 666924) that has been fixed in a recent release of Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server.
