What is your idea?


Enable a feature which will allow Tableau Online Administrators to backup all content from Tableau Online much like Tableau Server Admins do.


What problem are you trying to solve or what scenario would this idea solve?


Having a single feature built into Tableau Online, either by GUI command or tabcmd, would allow Tableau Online admins to retain offline copies of the most recent workbooks and data extracts. This allows users to continue working with data, as it is presented on Tableau Online, when web services are not available.


What workaround have you found and used so far (if any)?


Scheduling tabcmd scripts to periodically use 'get' for published content works similar to a backup command but can be very cumbersome.


What is your role in your organization?


Created on behalf of Bryce.
