This is currently a known issue that is being investigated by our engineering team.
Has this issue been resolved and/or a workaround obtained? I am using 8.0
Is there a workaround?
I'm noticing inconsistencies in this behavior as well (version 8.1). Sometimes the action filter dimension is displayed in the title, and other times it is not. Sometimes, when the field is able to be chosen in the title, I display it, and it displays "none" when it should display a dimension member.
I do not understand why/how/when this works as it is expected.
can you post an example?

No, but the original poster posted an example that is doing a similar thing--the field is available in the title's list of fields (two times), yet neither of those instances returns the correct value (always shows None instead) The only way they'll work is if you include the field on the level of detail, but this should not be required when fields are already in use in the view.
It is also very inconsistent--sometimes I get the behavior I expect, and other times, there seems to be no way to get the title to display the chosen field (even though the field shows in the list of available fields for the title--as in the example the original author of this thread posted)
The original poster's workbook can be addressed by adding the action fields to the level of detail on the target sheets--but it doesn't always make sense to do this (for example, a view with a pie chart showing % of total breakdowns--adding a dimension to the Level of Detail in a view like this will create a pie chart for each dimension member, which is not what I want), and I'm not sure how to address it in those instances.
I am starting to think it is related to quick filters and action filters on the same sheet--I could be wrong, but it seems like the issues I've had have been introduced when adding quick filters to sheets that already have action filters on them.
I am pretty lost with it; and cannot pinpoint the problem. I would love someone to provide some clarity in this area.
Maybe I should test that one...
And Tracy was able to turn 'NONE' to 'ALL' with an if [title] = [title] then [title] calculation. See here.
Since the talk about a "known problem being investigated by the Tableau Engineering team' is now at least 2.5 years old, I'm wondering: can someone from the Engineering team please give an update on when these probs will be solved ? Or ideally, author an authoritative kb article on how to work around them ?

I am experiencing the same issue as described. I have multiple data sources and worksheets. Using actions I am navigating to another worksheet using "menu" action type with selected fields. The title does not change based on the selection on the starting sheet, nor does it get passed to the sheet I land on based on the action. On the starting sheet I receive something along the lines of "ABC and 46 others", even though I have selected only one item. Once I utilize the action, its NULL if I used the "ACTION(..." field in the title.
Any ideas or workarounds?
Screen shot to highlight what I'm describing. I am using version 8.3
I am going to explore options with a calculated field or parameter, but felt it should work as advertised..

Hi. Not sure if it's still relevant to anyone, but I had the same issue and I think I found the solution. You need to put dimension you want to show to the "Marks" shelf.
In the example above "Product name" sheet doesn't show "Sub-Category" (first pic), so you have to go to "Product name" sheet and put "Sub-Category" to the "Marks" shelf (second pic).
Hope that helps!
Thank you! This worked for me.
I am replying in case this might help others.
Yes...it works if you put a dimension into the detail, but there are times you won't want the dimension in the detail to further partition your data.
I have found that putting the dimension in the header in the format <dimension (2)> seems to work. I love to see other feedback as to why this works, but I have had success in this manner! Make sure there is a space before the parenthesis.
What do you mean by 'putting the dimension in the header in the format <dimension (2)>? In what header are you putting the dimension? I don't want to introduce additional granularity in the filtered sheet.
This issue has been reported 5 years ago and it hasn't been solved yet?
May I know if this is resolved or any work around for this please?
I am using 10.2 version of Tableau and still facing the issue.
The Dimensions I am using on the Header are not reflecting values as per the Action(Filters)
NABP# <NCPDP Number1>
GCN-report - AllGCNsSorted By Leakage AWP$
Report Period - <Reporting Period1>
Calculation Type - <Calculation Method>
These are reflecting values when filters are used but not reflecting with 'Action(Filers)'
