    Upgrading Tableau Content

    David Kurak

      We previously upgraded from Tableau Server 6.0 to 6.1 and are now planning to move up to the latest 7.0 version. When we upgraded from 6.0 to 6.1, the actual software upgrade went smoothly, and the users and content from the 6.0 version were available, but we had issues browsing the workbooks. The workbooks were still in the previous version: we had to download each workbook in the new 6.1 Tableau Desktop, save the book in the new version, and then upload back onto the server.

       

      My first question: is this the expected behavior?

       

      2nd question: is there a way to automatically upgrade the content? This wasn't a big deal for us last year b/c we didn't have much content. However, we have MANY more books spread across our organization so manually upgrading each of these via our desktop will take some time...

       

      Thanks,

      Dave
