ResolutionTo bypass this behavior, try the following workaround:
It will be necessary to create a blank worksheet, created from the Viz in Tooltip data source, and add it to the dashboard view. This worksheet can be set to floating and resized so that it does not overlap any other elements in the dashboard view.
NOTE: The blank worksheet will tell Tableau to load the data source upon opening the workbook (or viewing the published dashboard).
CauseThe ability to utilize Viz in Tooltips with a dashboard containing blended datasources works only under limited circumstances. In some cases, the data source connection to the secondary data source needs to loaded before the expected filtering takes effect.
Thank you for providing your feedback on the effectiveness of the article.
