Yes, you are right and Thanks for the information, I have tested it with my Analysis services OLAP cube and it is confirmed that Apply button is inactive for all the time. Interestingly when you choose "Show Apply Button" then quick filter is dead.(no changes even if you select or deselect)
May be this is a bug, its worth to create a Tableau support ticket support@tableausoftware,com. If you want to create then please let me know else I will create a ticket.
Thanks Indumon. Thats exactly what I am getting too regards to the dead quick filter. If you can create this ticket that would be great When do you think this fix can make it to the minor release?
I have created a support ticket for this case.
When do you think this fix can make it to the minor release?
Completely depends on Tableau dev team .
By the way can you please provide your analysis server version and build number?
Thank you for creating the ticket. I am currently running the followinf version: Version 8.1.0 (8100.13.1118.2110) 64-bit
I'm experiencing the same issue with a cube as the data source. Any updates on this along the way would be greatly appreciated.
Just a follow on - this issue has been documented with Tableau Engineering for resolution in a future release. Thank you for reporting the issue.
The apply button is shaded out (as if it's not active), but it still works. Can be confusing to the user especially with multiple quick filters, each with their own apply/cancel buttons. I would love to see just one apply button for the entire sheet for all filters. It's a little cumbersome for the user to have to click the apply button on every single filter change. It would be nice if the user could change a bunch of filters then just press one master apply button.
Edit: Adding screenshot
That’s not the case with cubes in our instance. It causes the view to go blank and not render. Tableau confirmed it was a bug.
I am using an extracted data set and am getting an issue with the apply button being greyed out.
I've tried clicking the apply button anyway but the filter does not work
It happens when a search is used.
When you go back and select all and then manually choose the filter options the apply button works.
