Solved! It was a permissions issue difference on the server tab and workbook settings. The tab users levels were set to interactor for all users, but some users only had viewer set at the workbook level. So the filter actions that only worked on a tab would work fine for them, but they would get a run action error if the action was supposed to take them to another tab in the workbook. Also learned that users with only viewer permissions cannot see the quick filter controls unless they have at least interactor permissions. The full screen issue was some users had their auto hide function (Alt/Space/H) toggled off, so F11 did not hide the IE8 toolbars in full screen mode.
Thanks for posting the solution! However, I find it a little disconcerning that a permissions issue like this would evaluate to what looks like an unhandled error. If it truely is a permissions issue then a graceful error should be displayed (this is more of a hint to the Tableau dev. team )
I have a user who is an Interactor not a Viewer and still has this " run-action" error unexpected server error while interacting with Tableau Server. He is using IE8 . Any ideas?
