    Using dashboards for tracking/wave studies

    Candice Seiger

      Hi all,


      Is anyone using dashboards as a way to streamline reporting on tracking/wave studies -- particularly awareness & usage studies? 


      My team is considering loading all our historical data from our SQL server to the tableau server as a Tableau Extract but the question is how we add data to the extract each wave. I've found some references on how to update extract files but was wondering if anyone had done it specifically for survey data.  Performance is a concern as the data files for each wave are already quite large. 


      Also, is there a way to set up the dashboard to update to the most recent wave each time data is loaded?  Or at least minimize the work needed each wave to publish a new dashboard?


      Thanks in advance for any advice/best practices.
