Tableau automatically extracts the data upon connecting via Google Analytics, since the Tableau Data Engine is faster and has more functionality than the analytics natively supported in GA. You should be able to set your GA connections to update on a nightly schedule, though I don't know if those updates are automatically handled as incremental updates (I believe they are, I'm just not certain).
I hope this helps,
thankls for your reply- ahve been on to Tableau Suppoert on same issue.
Thing is when I open my report and try to create the extract that would allow me to schedule nightly updates, the option to extract is greyed out and not accessible.
I ahve been back on to Support so hopefully they can answer my question.
