  • Issue#7: Tableau - Javascript API embed and hide breadcrumbs

    Using Tableau Server 9.2. I am playing with the Javascript API to embed vizs in web pages. It works nicely except I want to hide the top part of the viz page, everything including and above the navigation breadcrumb part. The part circle in red is what I want to remove from the embedded viz. What options can be set to hide this part of the embedded viz? Here is my webpage code....

  • Issue#9: Tableau - Funnel chart

    After searching the net for some time for funnel charts Tableau solutions, I found that the proposed solutions were stillmissing something: from not being too much of a funnel visually, to some labeling issues, and to a bigger problem - that is the limitation of having the values progressively decreasing from top to bottom (else the funnel would look funny). And in a sales pipeline case, where the opportunities move from one stage to the next, the total amounts by each stage do not necessarily d...

  • Issue#10: Tableau - Additional Permissions Controlling What User Can See

    Implementing more granular controls around what a user can see would alleviate potential security concerns and points of confusion for end users that don't know what certain aspects of the UI do.Specifically: When viewing a Workbook, you see Views, Data Sources, Refresh Schedule, etc across the top. The ability to deny a user access to see Data Sources and Refresh Schedule would eliminate confusion for most of our end users if they were to get to that screen. Tableau currently lacks this le...

  • Issue#12: Tableau - update to primary server IP

    Over this past w/e, the IP of our primary Tableau server was updated to a new VM cluster within the network.  I followed instructions in the admin guide which states when this occurs, run a tabadmin stop, tabadmin config, tabadmin start in order to update communication throughout the cluster.  None of the commands worked (including "tabadmin stop").  Anybody have any ideas as to why or what to do?  For now, we rolled back the IP change. ORD-TBL107 (primary):  &...

  • Issue#13: Tableau - Sorting by Aggregate Timestamps isn't working....

    We have a list of SSIS Packages, each with a set of tasks that are performed nightly as part of our ETL.  I'm looking to build a dashboard that shows the status of each Package and it's respective tasks, including when each task was started, when it finished, how long it ran, and whether there were any errors.  All of this data is in the table, but I'm having trouble sorting the tasks in order of their operation. To overcome the problem of there being one record every evening for each ...

  • Issue#14: Tableau - Tableau Automated Extractions Update Tool

    Good night folks, Because of the needs of a project, i am implementing a tool whose purpose is to update extractions indicated in .TWB files or .TWBX packages exported from Tableau Desktop, in scenarios where there is no Tableau Server. I know there is a similar function called RefreshExtraction in Tableau.exe, however unlike this feature, my implementation is intended to not rely on a Tableau Server, acting directly in .TWB / .TWBX files to automate the updating of data published to u...

  • Issue#15: Tableau - Forward Slash in Quick Filter Title

    Running Tableau 9.0 and Tableau Server 9.0.I have a quick filter that has a title with a slash in it: "ID / Name"It displays fine in Tableau Desktop, but when I publish it up to the server, it still displays fine but the tooltip displays "ID / Name" This is not an issue with Parameters or labels. As far as I've been able to tell, it's only how the Quick Filter titles get parsed on Tableau Server. How can I get the slash to display correctly in the quick filter tooltip? Tha...

  • Issue#17: Tableau - Polygon Creating Rounding Errors

    I am trying to create custom polygons over a background image, but I am finding that Tableau is rounding to the nearest whole number. All of my point locations in Excel have two decimal places, but the points in Tableau all end in ".00". I've formatted my X and Y in Tableau to make sure it shows 2 decimal places, but I'm not sure why it keeps rounding to the nearest integer. Help!...

  • Issue#19: Tableau - Return Nth Largest Number Across Numbers (Unsorted) for Each Row

    I've seen a couple of useful suggestions in this forum for returning the Nth largest number, but unfortunately all of them require the numbers to be sorted.  Is there a solution that would do the same with unsorted numbers?  Please see examples below:  I'm trying to find the 2nd largest score for each student among the test scores they got from the different exams.  The subjects have to be displayed in this particular order so numbers may not be sorted (at all) for all the ro...

        Hello all, I just want to begin by saying how much this forum has saved my job! Thanks everyone! I am having an issue getting my values to aggregate properly. I have attached two pictures below to help explain:BEFOREAFTERThe problem is that when I remove a dimension, the values are not aggregating properly. Each Facility and Cost Center should have 1 App attached to it and taking away Summary Pay type should not aggregate those Apps. Once I take away Cost Center, the...

  • Issue#21: Tableau - Use table worksheet as a datasource

    There are plenty of times where I would like to use a table on a worksheet as a new datasource - perhaps there are some complex table calculations that I don't want Tableau to recalculate, or that make the chart difficult to draw. Maybe they are totals that I want to refer back to. You can sort of do this by copying the table out (view data), then pasting but: This doesn't work when the row count is well into the thousands (copying crashes Tableau with out of memory error)This isn't dy...

  • Issue#23: Tableau - Pin row labels while scrolling crosstab in Tableau Server

    When you're scrolling down a crosstab in Tableau Desktop, the leftmost row label(s) are pinned to the top of the screen so you can always see which section you're in.  This makes a big difference when you have hundreds of detail lines for each leftmost row - it allows you to always see which section you're in. When you publish the same cosstab to Tableau Server, this feature no longer exists.  The same feature should be added to Tableau Server. This idea is related to the fol...

  • Issue#24: Tableau - Make Server Extract Path Editable

    Some of our tableau users tend to publish extracts to the server while pointing to a local drive where the original data file reside. They later found that the refresh failed and realized that the path to the data set is the culprit. To remedy it, one has to republish a data source and replace data source. It may break the workbook and dashboard. I would propose to make the server extract path editable so that user can change it to a UNC path. This may save a considerable amount of effort from ...
