After some practice, you can exclude down to the minute for folks like me who are impatient.

This actually makes it more complicated if you don't want to be locked in to picking a day/time.
Creating the empty extract with a parameter means you can kick off the process manually whenever you want via normal scheduling options.
how is this helpful? You couldn't even add a link? Sorry to be harsh, but we've got to do better than this.
Hey David. Just to set clarify, Diego was performing the function of helping to moderate the forums. His role isn't to answer questions, necessarily, but to facilitate in the process of getting questions answered. You'll often see various employees of Tableau or other Community members move posts to more appropriate forums because it increases the chances that a question gets an appropriate answer. So when you see that happening, just recognize that it's all part of a standard workflow for helping people get answers to their questions, but not necessarily the answer itself.
Understood Matt, thanks.
