I don't have an answer but what web browsers is this happening on? There was an issue with IE8 and Server version 8.0.2 is supposed to fix it.
Hi Toby -
Thanks for the response. Observed with Chrome 27.# and IE9. I am running server 8.01, so I'd expect that support will tell me to get to 8.02 as a matter of first action.
Hi Everybody -
I got a response back from tab support saying they could duplicate the problem, but that it looked to be fixed in the current beta release of tab server. They also said a work around involved force disabling client refresh by appending to the URL. Unfortunately, my user base aren't the kind of guys that can be reliably asked to modify URL parameters.
BUT. Poking around the client-refresh documentation, I found that in some instances, tableau server will auto disable client-refresh. Specifically if a polygon is on your sheet. So, create a tiny or title bar sheet for your dashboard, set the shape to polygon, drag the sheet onto your dashboard and size it so that nothing renders (or just renders the title if used that way), and you are golden.
**** Brian, nice work-around!
