Hi Tyler - It's working for me. Here's what I did:
- Created a workbook which pulled in a SQL Server table
- Created an extract of same
- Published workbook to server w/o setting up a refresh schedule
- In the Server portal, I selected that workbook and Scheduled Tasks is enabled. I click it.
- I add a Full Refresh task for the workbook, etc.
- For kicks, I also published a workbook with no extract. In this case Scheduled Tasks was disabled on the toolbar. For yet more kicks, I published a data source which utilized an extract, and I *can* select Scheduled Tasks for it. My environment: - Server 7 running in Active Directory mode. Running the Service under an AD account - Me logged in at the console using the SAME AD Account - SQL running on a different box Hope this helps! Pics of what I see attached.
Do you have to be administrator to be able to enter the Scheduled Tasks menus in the Tableau Server portal? We've enabled scheduling but it's still greyed out for me (a publisher but not admin).
You're correct. I haven't tried this myself, but I recall a discussion in which someone asked the same question.
You do not need to be an admin to schedule a refresh, only the original publisher of the workbook.
Even I am facing the same issue. Even if i try scheduling the reports, the option is greyed out. Can anyone suggest how to enable the scheduler?
Not sure, if it's intact. You need to enable scheduling in the Server so the content can be scheduled for refresh
