We have had Tableau Server in place for a while and by far the most common issue reported to me is that fact that Server wants to recalculate reports after every filter selection is made. Is there any way to defer the update until all the requested filters have been put into place? We have some reports where 10-15 filters are available, so it can be fairly troublesome for our end users if they are using multiple filters.
I know you can do this in Excel Pivot Tables by selection the “Defer Layout Update” option and then click the “Update” button when you are ready to roll. Thanks in advance for your help!
Look for the "Pause Automatic Updates" button in the web interface. It toggles whether quick filter selections update the dashboard or not. That will allow your users to make changes and then resume when they are ready.
