    How Incremental Refresh will work on Date field

    Bruce Richardson

      We have a number of refreshes running each day on a data source on Tableau Online.

       

      Currently these are running as full refreshes but i want to move to incremental so have started testing but not working as expected in that no new rows of data are being brought in according to the Background Tasks for Extracts element of Tableau Online.

       

      Incremental is currently set on Date field which has the format DD/MM/YYYY.

       

      If i have 2 refreshes on the same day (1 at 9am and 1 at 5pm) will the second refresh bring any new data in as all the data since the 9am refresh will have the same date? Would i need a date time field instead?

       

      Thanks in advance!
