Issue#15: Tableau - Forward Slash in Quick Filter Title

  • Running Tableau 9.0 and Tableau Server 9.0.

    I have a quick filter that has a title with a slash in it: "ID / Name"

    It displays fine in Tableau Desktop, but when I publish it up to the server, it still displays fine but the tooltip displays "ID / Name"


    This is not an issue with Parameters or labels. As far as I've been able to tell, it's only how the Quick Filter titles get parsed on Tableau Server.


    How can I get the slash to display correctly in the quick filter tooltip?

    Hello, I am using two excels; one is primary data source (Employee-Issues) and other is secondary data source (Employee-Data). I have built a tableau worksheet using Employee-Issues and then created a relationship (data blending) with secondary data source using employee id field. However I here is a dimension called Country in secondary data source and I want to use it as a Quick Filter. The issues is that when I am using it as quick filter "Null" values show up and I am not finding a way to get rid of null values. P.S- tried creating set and then using calculated field. However, after creating set and calculated field I am not able to use that cal field in the filterI have also tried using IsNull in condition but it still shows upI have tried creating this formula:if ISNULL(ATTR([ClusterMapping (ClusterMapping)].[Cluster]))=FALSE thenATTR([ClusterMapping (ClusterMapping)].[Cluster])ENDbut it is throwing me an error: the "==" function can not be applied to table calculations

  • Issue#170878: Tableau - Dynamic worksheet title based on action filter

    I have some sales data with sales type dimension: online and store. I created a horizontal filter sheet that filters a graph on a dashboard based on three choices: online, store, and total sales. Total sales is a parameter I created which is supposed to act like the (All) field. I have this parameter on the row section while the [Sales Type] dimension is on the column section. I want the sheet title for the bar graph to dynamically change based on the filter choice the user clicks. For example, if user clicks 'Total Sales' the worksheet title should be something like '2015 Total Sales Revenue'. If the users clicks 'Online', the worksheet should title should change to something like '2015 Online Sales Revenue'. If the user clicks 'Store', the worksheet title should change to something like '2015 Store Sales Revenue'. I can get the title to change if 'one of Store' or 'Online' is selected but if both are selected it shows as 'Online & Sales' but I want it to show as 'Total Sales'.

    Hi, In my mapping dashboard, I created an action dashboard filter so that when I hover the selection, it generates the trend charts. However, I'm trying to make the title in the small trend filter dynamic based on the hover selection.

  • Issue#328183: Tableau - Why doesn't bar chart filtering impact the quick filter?

    I have a bar chart worksheet in my dashboard I'm using as a filter for other sheets withing the dashboard.  I also have a quick filter built into the bar chart.  When I click on one of the items in my bar chart to filter the other worksheets in the dashboard, it doesn't appear to affect the quick filter within the bar chart worksheet, the quick filter still says "all" rather than the item I've click on the bar chart.

  • Issue#414653: Tableau - How to filter different data source using quick filter or dynamic parameter

    Hi all, I want to ask about filtering across different data source.  Problem:Above is the example from my dummy data. I have 2 sheet, "Sheet A" and "Sheet B". I need to filter both of them using "Company name" dimension. But because they came from different data source then I thought to use parameter at the first time. But, the weakness of parameter is we cannot show the list of dimension that available to certain "City", for short parameter cannot be dynamic as we use "Only relevant values" in quick filters. Because my data source contain thousand of Company Name, i think it will be strange if we show the client thousand of option, also parameter doesn't have "search" function as quick filters does. Any idea how it would be better? Expected result:I want to show list of company only for the choosen city, but the filters affected both of sheets. Thanks Randy

  • Issue#417063: Tableau - Action filter is not playing well with quick filters - have to re-select a county each tim

    Hello, I have a dashboard with two maps and a data table, and several quick filters - all from the same data source.  I am using the maps as an action filter to limit data in the table, and I have three quick filters that filter data in the maps as well as the table.  It works as intended upon initial selection - choosing a county in either map limits the table to only the agencies in that county, and the maps and table reflect only the data based on the three quick filters.   I want the county selection from a map to "hold" so the user can cycle through as many of the quick filter options as they desire before choosing a new county.  Instead, as soon as a different option is chosen from any of the three quick filters, the county selection goes away and all counties are enabled again.   All three quick filters are applied to all worksheets on the dashboard. I've read many help articles, blogs, community posts, the Desktop manual, etc. and ca

  • Issue#493353: Tableau - Overwrite/Change the value in URL filter by changing the Quick filter

    I have 2 dashboards. Dashboard A and Dashboard B. They both are different workbooks and are published separately, but they both show information regarding "Program".For users they can either directly go to Dashboard B or navigate from Dashboard A by selecting a program. Dashboard B has a "Program" Quick filter. When I navigate to Dashboard B from Dashboard A by selecting "Program A". The Dashboard B shows data correctly but when I change the Quick filter to some other program it shows a blank report, because the URL filter still shows "Program A".I am not sure if this is a recent issue but this was working sometime earlier. Is there a way to make it work? i need to overwrite the Quick filter value in URL . I am using Tableau Desktop 9.1 and Tableau Server 9.1.

  • Issue#664226: Tableau - Dynamic Quick Filter with Date Range

    Hi, I have a question. I would like to set a quick filter on my data, with the default date range going for the past 12 months... However, I would like for it to be a slider, so the customer can still select different ranges of dates. The dates are only in the format of month and year (January 2015, February 2015 etc.) I would like for the slider to display the last 12 months dynamically by default -- May 2015 to April 2016, but the customer can still move the slider around to select their own date.So next month, the slider would default to June 2015 to May 2016 and so on...Is this possible to do, without having to republish every month? Thank you for your help .

  • Issue#879187: Tableau - Show/Hide Message on Dashboard Based on Quick Filter Selection

    Apologies if this has been answered. I've searched the forums for a couple hours with no luck. I would like a message to appear on certain sheets on my dashboard if the number records for a certain view falls below a threshold, based on a quick filter selection. For example, I would like a message in red to pop up and say "Note: The n < 10 for the chart", if a user selects "Small companies" but not to appear if "Large companies" is selected. I'm thinking the best way to do this is to create that title for some unused sheet, and the show/hide it based on the selection. I could hardcode those and ignore the need for the "<10" calculation. But I'm struggling with how to show/hide based on the quick filter. I've seen examples on these forums about how to do these based on action filters, i.e. clicking on something, but I want it to happen automatically. Thanks so much for your help!

  • Issue#1066118: Tableau - Why is the Y-Axis Title Disappearing Based on a Filter

    I have a very simple stacked bar viz. (see image #1).  When I remove one of the Dimension values via the filter, the Y-axis title disappears (see image #2).   Toggling the Severity NA value always makes the Y-axis title appear/disappear, but toggling any of the other Severity codes doesn't impact the Y-axis title.  The NA value is simply one of the (string) values in the data; it's not a null value or anything out of the ordinary.  I can't think of any reason why this would happen.  Unfortunately I can't post a twbx file with this problem due to security and confidentiality concerns. I've tried replicating the problem with very simple test data but was unable to do so. Does anyone has any suggestions as to what might trigger this behavior?

  • Issue#20: Tableau - Aggregation issue

        Hello all, I just want to begin by saying how much this forum has saved my job! Thanks everyone! I am having an issue getting my values to aggregate properly. I have attached two pictures below to help explain:BEFOREAFTERThe problem is that when I remove a dimension, the values are not aggregating properly. Each Facility and Cost Center should have 1 App attached to it and taking away Summary Pay type should not aggregate those Apps. Once I take away Cost Center, then they should begin to aggregate. I can use MAX() but then it keeps the same value when I get rid of cost center and I would want that to be Summed. The end goal of this is to track Dollars/App By facility and able to drilldown to cost center, then summary pay type and another layer of fidelity that I may add in. Thanks!

  • Issue#38: Tableau - Iterative Printing / PDF Creation Using Filter or Parameter

    Not having this has made life miserable this week. We need to have the ability to iteratively print a dashboard or view based on stepping through values in a filter or parameter. This would resolve scenarios where you want to be able to easily print (or PDF) several copies of the same dashboard / view with different content. In my scenario, I have a dashboard that can be filtered by hospital. In order to create a printable PDF for our CEO, I have to create/maintain 5 versions of the same dashboard (one for each hospital). If I could iteratively print, I would just set the iteration on the facility field and only maintain 1 dashboard. P.S. Iterative subscriptions would also be a positive. You could even allow the remembered views to be used as the iteration field.

  • Issue#71: Tableau - Need some help with the filter option

    Dear Tableau community,  I'm working on a dashboard to present the great possibilities Tableau has to offer.I was wondering when you use the filter option instead of deleting the data you are filtering out, if you could keep the value and just make it a particular colour.So basically what im asking is if you can use the filter option to give particular value a other colour. If its not possible is there a other way of doing this?Further i would like it to do it for a range of values just like in the filter option. Kind regards,Bo
