No, it rolls back everything you did on a sequential order basis. I wouldn't want to work any other way.
Hmmm? It seems to me the natural workflow is to undo the actions taken for the "active" sheet that I am on at the moment.
Otherwise, if it's "globally sequential" then if I have multiple sheets (common use case) it will make unintended undo.
For example, it's common to have a dozen or so sheets and while working on , say Sheet 12, then make a discovery and now need to jump back to say Sheet 3 and undo a few things and make a few more changes while have NO intention for the Undo feature to change anything on Sheet 12.
Another conceptual example: I have 2 tabs on my browsers. When I click Back on tab 1, it goes back to the previous webpage for that tab 1 and NOT making the tab 2 active and go back to its (tab 2) previous webpage.
Am I way out there? How can you accomplish what I describe? Or what I describe rarely occurs?
This is very puzzling to me... but then I am new to Tableau.
There's no way to accomplish what you want - this is just the behavior of Tableau. As Tableau is so quick to make the changes I need, i don't personally see any need for a change. But add an idea on the idea forum - maybe it's just me.
Excel undoes work sequentially, but it does flip to the sheet you are undoing from - I can see how that would be helpful.
