I have a dashboard with multiple underlying worksheets in it that I want to do an alert on and I would like to either cherrypick the csv attached or include all of them by default. Whether i use simple or advanced, by default, if I reference the dashboard, it arbitrarily picks a worksheet from the dashboard to execute for the csv. No control available. And I have to expose all the sheets (I think) in order to export them manually. They were hidden and I don't really want them exposed. Any suggestions?
Hi Christopher. For dashboards, the sheet selection is not arbitrary, it is alphabetical (VizAlerts has no control over this, it's simply what Tableau Server provides when we ask for the CSV version of a viz).
We recommend prepending "-" to the sheet you wish to use as the trigger. See "Dashboard with Hidden Embedded Alert" in the User Guide.
