    Marks - Order of Execution

    Karthikeyan Masialamani



      I have 2 columns in X, say for example Department, Manager.


      I used Shapes for Department and Color for Manager, The order which I followed is as below.


      1) Drag and dropped the Columns in the column shelf.

      2) Drag and dropped Department in the shapes ( custom shapes)

      3) Drag and dropped the Manager in the color


      Does tableau apply the same order of execution ( as mentioned above) internally ? Or anything based on tableau engine?

          Hello Karhikeyan,


          As you drag the marks out they should be querying as they are dropped onto the sheet. Though if you have data updates paused I believe Tableau will run the query for the entire view, in which, Tableau will optimize the query to the best of its ability to return the data.


          Additionally, there is a section of the Tableau product help on the order of operations found here: Tableau's Order of Operations


          Hope this helps!


          Cheers, Byrne, Patrick
