So i got access to datasets (including the Reddit comment dataset) shared by fhoffa here: https://bigquery.cloud.google.com/table/fh-bigquery:reddit_comments.2015_05
I can see the datasets in my own Bigquery panel and run SQL queries on them.
However, when I try to use Tableau to access them, these datasets (shared by fhoffa) are not available as an option, presumably since I'm not the original Project Owner (although I do have read/edit rights I think).
Interested to see if anyone have the same issue and how to resolve this. Thanks much!
May be you've discovered it yourself already, anyway...
When connecting to BQ from Tableau (Desktop),
in the Project box enter 'fh-bigquery' (without quotes :-)
and click a + sign on the right. Hope it does the trick.
