ViewData will only work with dashboards published in Tableau Online and not with single published Sheets.
Your ViewData dashboard won't work if you have a "Phone Layout" active in your Tableau workbook. Please disable this option for your ViewData to work in optimal conditions!
Your ViewData dashboard resolution must be previously defined in Tableau Desktop or in Tableau Online with an Explorer License. Our suggestion is to have 1:2 or 2:1 ratio. For example, a 400x200px should work flawlessly !
The name of your Tableau Online dashboard should have no special characters such as commas, points or exclamation points.
ViewData automatic field recognition will only work if you have permission to download the dashboard data in Tableau Online. If the dashboard owner didn't grant you this acces, you should manually upload your columns and keywords via CSV.
To manually upload a CSV with keywords, please consider that the file should only have one column, and no header.
Currently ViewData only supports primary database filters, so filters by datablending won't work. This issue is being reviewed with Tableau and should be fixed soon.
Currently ViewData works by filtering all dashboards sheets. If one sheet of the dashboard needs no filter, a FIXED should be applied to that sheet. This issue is being worked with Tableau and should be solved soon.
