There is no third party tool that I am aware of. However, this might be a good one to add to the Ideas section!
But has anyone tried to build an alerting mechanism....where the report data may be read and sent as an alert to users?
You would probably want to create the data alert from the database. Some of the guys at Interworks(?) created an alert mechanism using SQL Server where a SQL Server script runs after the database is updated. If the assigned thresholds in the script are exceeded, it batches a Tableau Server Tabcmd which refreshes a view and emails the report using a third-party email tool. I would like to set up that same process here but it is impossible to get our IT shop to install any FREE open source third-party tools on our servers.
Hope this helps.
Great thanks....I shall try to implement on something similar to what you have told
