    Extract refresh in Tableau Desktop if the data source resides in SharePoint

      Hello Everyone,


      Please try to help me with the below questions:


      1. I am importing data from SharePoint into Tableau Desktop using Odata connection. Is extract refresh possible while we are using Odata connection ?


      2. I know Tableau Server provides us with an option to schedule the extract refresh but is there anyway through which we can automate extract refresh using Tableau Desktop ? I have gone through different articles and found nothing really informative about it except for a tool called autoit which is used to control the key strokes to provide automation. I am looking for other ways if anybody has tried it in the past and it worked for them.


      Thanks in advance!
