    Using incremental refresh intelligently...

    Aalok Jain

      Hello All,

      Wondering if anyone has tried or is currently using incremental refresh intelligently:

       

      Use Case:

      With regards to the stock queries (and figures produced from it), the stock figures need to populated daily, but previous days figures should not be cleared until the beginning of the following week.  In other words, we need to be able to populated stock on Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday, etc. without overwriting the figures for the previous days.

       

      So if we have a table along the lines of

       

      Day

      Mon

      Tue

      Wed

      Thu

      Fri

      Stock

      1000

      900

      800

      700

      600

       

      And a stock query that refreshed daily, does tableau have the functionality to intelligently choose which day to write the figures against based on what the current date  is (without clearing/refreshing any other day)?

       

      Regards,

      A
