I do believe I've seen something like this but don't remember if there was a good solution to it. My suggestion would be to dispense with story points altogether and use dashboard buttons instead. This feature was just added in 2019.2 (I think) and it allows you to create a button to go from one dashboard to another. So, add a button to the Survey dashboard (you can even use a custom image) that jumps to the results dashboard. I think that this should eliminate the problems you're seeing with story points.
Thanks Ken! I decided to do a test and publish dashboards without even incorporating the buttons yet.
1. Published a wkbk with only two dashboards and checked the tableau public setting for 'show sheets as separate tabs'.
2. Changed one entry and tab'ed over to the results dashboard. Happy to see the change stuck this time.
Would love to hear the details from anyone for why a parameter updates for dashboards but not for stories! As for now though, I'm ok with an action button approach. Appreciate it Ken.
The answer is mostly "because that's how stories work". Most filtering with Stories doesn't work the same way as it does in plain worksheets or dashboards.
The best way to think about it is that each story point is an independent container and you can't pass things from one container to another. That's a big oversimplification but for filters & parameters, it's close enough.
