    Project Management Action Filter Not Working Properly

    Michael Shull

      I posted a simple project management vitalization on Tableau Public for a customer. This dashboard has three sheets:

      1. Projects: Projects with milestones
      2. Activities: Activities with task completion flags
      3. Tasks: Tasks that are associated to a specific activity

       

      I have two action filters set on the dashboard--both have similar functions:

      1. Activity Filter: When clicking on a specific project in the project sheet, filters to display associated activities in the activity sheet.
      2. Task Filter: When clicking on a specific activity in the activity sheet, filters to display associated tasks in the task sheet.

       

      Here is what happens (which is absolutely correct) in Tableau Desktop (and Tableau Public Desktop--I tried both):

       

      Step one: Standard View

      Step Two: Clicked on the "Website" project:

      Step Three: Clicked on "Website" and "Unique and brief title 1" to show associated tasks:

      Here is what happens when I save to Tableau Public (The action filters don't work):
