    Tableau 8 - Filtering not acting as expected

    Daniel Vincent

      I have two worksheets in a dashboard.  They both share the same data source and more specifically the date.

       

      The top uses a "Browse Periods" filtering.

      The bottom sheet shows all dates regardless and is unaffected by the above date period filtering.  It is strictly to be used as an additional/optional filter for users if they notice a particular area in time which they want to zoom in on.

       

      What I see is the filters working as expected except when I use the bottom worksheet it changes the Browse Periods filter of the top worksheet to a range (see last image.)  Clicking out of the selection clears the choices in the bottom viz but the top viz retains the Range filter.  Any ideas on why this is occurring or better how to correct?

      Dashboard when filtering using the bottom viz.  Notice the top left filtering goes from Browse Period to a Range.
