    How can I keep my data connection live?

    Shannon Silva

      I have a set of Tableau dashboards that are connected to various Excel sheets that are housed on a Sharepoint site. At one time, the dashboards were live and automatically updated all the way through to the "published" status for others to view without me having to do anything. Somewhere along the way the connections changed so I have to reconnect them everytime to the Sharepoint - after I do they default back to temp files on my local drive.


      I'd like to figure out how to get it all set up to automatically update again. I'm going to be out of the office on leave for a few months and am the only one with access to Tableau - but the Excel sheets can continue to be updated by others. I can't seem to figure out how to get this connection back, and to stick, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
