    How to send email on personal mail id using simple Alerts ?

    upendra pisupati

      Hi Matt,

       

      I have used both advanced and simple alerts.

       

      Is there a any way to send simple alerts on personal email id (not the ones subscribed on Tableau), like we do in advanced alerts ?

       

      I tried adding Email To * field, but it doesn't work

       

      Please help

       

      Thank,

      Upendra

          The only difference between the two is that one requires the Email fields to run. So it's not too difficult to get the same behavior simply by using the Advanced action fields. Set the values accordingly and drag to Detail shelf in your viz:

           

          Email Action * (leave the existing value of 1)

          Email To * = youremail@whatever.com

          Email Subject * = whatever you want it to be

          Email Body * = 'VIZ_IMAGE(|vizlink)'

          Email Attachment ~ = 'VIZ_CSV()'

           

          Then subscribe, and you'll get the same behavior as the Simple alert. When there's data in the viz, you should get a single email to your own email address, with the linked image embedded, and the CSV attached.
