I personally have not experienced this, but usually just use the built-in Tableau Server/Online tabs for navigating. You may also want to submit an actual support case for unexpected behaviors like this: Support Case | Tableau Software
Let us know if you find a solution - does it work differently if you use the built-in tab from Server/Online? No worries, I understand wanting the links on the left to work, but just want to make sure I understand.
Hopefully some others can comment on whether they've seen anything like this -- seems strange indeed.
Happy analyzing and good luck!
Yeh, it’s strange indeed. The reason I preferred using nav tabs (rather than built in tableau tabs) is because it saves load time on dashboards viewed after the initial load. The even stranger aspect to all this is that everything was working fine like that until a couple weeks ago. I have put in a support ticket…
Awesome Patrick, thanks for following up and submitting a ticket. Let us know if you find any workarounds or solutions!
Best of luck and happy analyzing with Tableau!
I didn’t get much luck through the support ticket so ended up instead using the tableau API to display dashboards on my platform. The reason I liked embedded on separate nav tabs was that it helped user experience. Instead of loading up a dashboard each time you view a new page, it would load them all up on the nav tabs within a single.. so the only load time was the initial load and subsequent dashboards were fast.
I do notice tableau dashboard load time on web pages have improved over the past few years (especially with hyper extracts) so we are moving in the right direction
