    Different date formats on Desktop vs Online

    Arran Sadlier

      I've set my Desktop File->Workbook Locale to be local (English Australia) and date formats are interpreted correctly (DD/MM/YYYY).

      When twb and extract are published to Tableau Online they are initially correct.

       

      Yet when the daily extract refreshes the dates for a field are incorrectly reinterpreted as US date format (MM/DD/YYYY). So it seems to be related to changing back to US defaults, with our Tableau Online being hosted on 'us-east-1.online.tableau.com'.

       

      How can I get Tableau Online to have the date format set as default to be set to a specific local/region?
