I'm seeing something funny and was wondering if anybody can help out.
I have a data parameter and have the setting of "Type In" selected. In the desktop version of Tableau I get a little calendar icon and when you click on it a full calendar pops up and I can select a date.
Yet when I publish it (either to my local tableau server or the public tableau server) this functionality disappears. No calendar icon nor drop down calendar.
Example of parameter Date Test with no icon on Tableau Public Server
You can see a live version on the tableau public server here --> http://public.tableausoftware.com/shared/T7CB3TRQ5
Currently, the calendar widget is not available in Server. However, I believe that this is a common request that may be found in the Ideas section, if not, be sure to add it!
