Can somebody please help me here.
Hi Sonia, just a quick check.
If you are using Tableau Desktop, extract will only be updated if you are live-connected. Please go to the link:
Quoting off the quick guide for T7 Server incremental extract: "When you publish a workbook that has an incremental extract, you can associate it with up to two refresh tasks that Tableau Server will handle for you: An incremental refresh of the extract and a full refresh."
If you really need to have different update frequency, would it be possible to apply filter for the 'weekly' connection?
Hi Ben... Thanks so much for replying.
I am relatively new to Tableau. So any help is GREAT help. :)
The am not really aware of how i can filter the data connection to get updated weekly. Can you guide me here please.
It depends on your data. For example if your data contains date, then you can easily filter out all records that are not 7-day-old, or any duration you set. Then, an easy way would probably be
(1) create a calculated field using datediff and
(2) use the field as filter >n.
hope this helps.
Awesome! Thanks.. i'll try this. :)
