    What Kind of Refresh am I Actioning with the Tableau Online Sync Client?

    Jonathan Seaton

      Hey,

       

      Quite often there is a case where I will have to manually refresh a data source. The problem with that is that some of the data sources are quite big so I would only want to action an incremental refresh. I use the Tableau Online Sync Client and so I get to the point below:

       

       

      I don't really want to risk updating the larger data sources this way because if it is running a full refresh then that is bad for our DBs, but I can't tell whether it is running an incremental one or a full one. It would be nice to have the option of both if incremental has been enabled.

       

      Question: Can someone tell me whether it is a full or incremental refresh?

      Question: Would it be useful to have both options available (I know it would be for me)?

       

      Cheers,

      Mike
