Many of our customers use a Parameter Type In filter to easily select their own name out of hundreds of other names. Subsequently the dashboard adjust to the information for that particular employee. Because I'm using different data connections in the workbook, using a wildcard filter is not an option.
Since the migration from Tableau 6.1 to 7.0.7 the Parameter Type In filter does not work on the web. When the starting letters of a name are typed in, the matching name does not appear. In Desktop 7.0 however, it works fine.
When te whole name is copied into the type in filter on the web, and the view is refreshed, the filter does seem to work.
Does anyone has the same experience with the Parameter Type in filter, is this a known bug? Is there a workaround, or better a solution for this problem?
Hi Wouter -
I did a quick search in our bug database and didn't find anything recent on this. I see the same (apparently broken) behavior in 7.0.6 when I tested it.
I've opened a bug on this. Thanks for the catch!
