If I'm understanding correctly you're suffering on server because every time you add or take away a selection in your quick filter Tableau Server automatically refreshes. You would like to make all your selections and then hit "apply". If that's what you're looking for it will be coming out in 8.1 (this fall)!

Yup, easy-peasy! Simply click on the Pause Automatic Updates icon (looks like a power on/off icon):
Make your filter selections and when you're ready to refresh the view simply click on the Refresh icon:
The Pause Automatic Updates is a toggle so you can turn it on/off at any time during the session. It is NOT remembered so you would need to click this icon every time you open a workbook.
Toby, thanks for your feedback! I believe this refresh is going back to the source data, but we don't want to change any of that. Also, while doing that, we had some issues with the filters not keeping the appropriate selections.
Brittany, do you know when the 8.1 update will be available and how to download when it is?
That is exactly what we’re looking for! Do you have any idea precisely when Tableau 8.1 will be coming out? Also, will we be given information pertaining to upgrading our existing version later in the year?
Thanks so much for your help!

No precise date, but later this year is what has been said publicly about the 8.1 release. You should receive information about the release and how to upgrade, and the information will be readily available on the Tableau site, I believe.
Awesome, thanks so much!
I believe 8.1 is out now. Has the "apply button" solution that Brittany described been included?
