Can we remove the “All” option from the auto-filter in Tableau?

Yes, we can. Navigate to filter→ Right-click on it→ select customize→ uncheck the option “Show All”.

To remove the All option from a Tableau quick filter is possible by following these simple steps:

  1. Click the small down arrow in the quick filter heading
  2. Scroll down to Customize
  3. Uncheck where it says ‘Show “All” Value’ so there’s no longer a tick mark against it.

To show the All option follow steps 1 and 2, and in step 3 check the ‘Show “All” Value’ so the tick mark appears against it, as in the diagram below.
