Thanks for reply.
It was set to Automatic when I produced the error above.
I have just set it to Laptop and re-published and the problem still persists.
Which version of Desktop & Server?
Have you tried different browsers? (which are you using currently?)
In the dashboard, are the worksheets set to Normal, Entire View? Missing Horizontal Scrollbar
Things to try... in a copy!
- Try amending the font size down (of the parameters/ filters) then republish
- Try setting the dashboard size to exact, set the dimensions based on what you have currently
- Is there a zoom set on the browser?
There is a useful comment from Jeff on a similar thread
Interested to know now
Consider this. On the problem dashboard, remove the parameter entirely. Then for one of the sheets that use the parameter, re-activate it (Note: I haven't figured out Tableau's "thinking" when I add a parameter to a sheet this way. Sometimes it tiles the parameter on the bottom-most container. Sometimes it adds it to a floating container, and which one it chooses is inexplicable to me. But once you find where tableau puts it, you can move it to wherever you really need it.)
See if removal and re-insertion fixes your issue.
Thanks Mark and Mahooj for your suggestions.
I have Tableau 9.3 64 bit version installed on my laptop.
I tried adding a slider to a worksheet - and that worked fine! I could see it on the server. So it is just on the dashboard.
So I pulled off the sheet from the dashboard and the parameter controls associated with it. (Previously I added the controls by clicking the down arrow on the worksheet when its on the dashboard).
When I re-added the worksheet it pulled the controls on at the same time.
Then when I published the slider control appears on the Tableau server.
Thanks for your suggestions.
So it was removing the sheet and adding it and leaving the parameter controls on the dashboard that worked,
Thanks for feeding back, great news its fixed
Sometimes its just silly things...
I have marked Mahfooj's answer correct as it maybe useful to others in the future.
Best of luck with your future development... I have to admit a soft spot for NHS data having worked as a data analyst for 8 years (gosh, I miss 18 week reporting)
Mahfooj Khan, good work
