    Server based extract datasource, how to use

    ali twaij

      Hi guys I am now using server based datasource which i publish via the desktop version. This seems to be the most straightforward way to use tableau for me. I publish them and then i connect my desktop to the published datasource (shows the tableau icon after connecting to it). Now if i want to add calculated fields into this datasource from my desktop is this possible? If so how?


      My understanding is that calculated fields become part of the datasource. So once you publish a data source you cant change any existing calculated fields for instance. Is that correct? Unless i go to the server and download the datasource and make changes to it there i think. Is this right?
