    Extract Refresh in Packaged Workbooks

    Vladimir Patsionov

      Hi everyone! We all know that we can refresh extracts on schedules by using Tableau Server. But I am interested in automatic extract refresh which is inside a Tableau packaged workbook. In our company Tableau packaged workbooks used for users who cannot go to Tableau server and who are not allowed to make any changes into reports. So they open packaged workbooks only in Tableau Reader. To be sure that data inside these packaged workbooks are up to date, administrator has to open packaged  workbook, use Extract->Refresh function and re-save the workbook. I am wondering - is there a way to make this operation automatically withiout opening and re-saving each workbook? Or the only way to implement this is to write some kind of bat file or using tableau command line?
