Issue 5 - I have a private meet-up I'm going to attend but I can only place it in my business calendar, not in "My Agenda" in the Tableau Conf. app . In order to see my agenda I will have to VPN into work to get my work calendar, making the TC app. kinda meaningless as I might as well put everything into my calendar.
Solution - Allow empty placeholders that can be added to "My Agenda" that allow us to add custom entries. Allow a date and a time range, along with a note section, so it will 'flow' with the TC app and appear in the correct chronological order.
I agree with you completely. I did not make this schedule builder last year because I had hoped they had fixed some of these issues. Apparently not.. so here we go again.
This should at least help with issues 1-4. I did not think about issue 5
This year I managed to hook this up to the live web data connector so that you can refresh and get new sessions. Only caveat is that they have not been keeping the data source up to date with room location information. When I refresh I lose that info.. so I had been waiting until they got that sorted to post this...
You can still build your schedule as they are added by session ID. I assume by the last day they will have the room info available. Just download the book and refresh whenever you like.
Great work Dan! Tableau still needs to make improvements on their app but this can help others build their schedule
One suggestion: Red text on cyan is difficult to read I'd recommend using a different color.
I ran into the same situation of the filter "AND" vs. "OR". In any case, it was a big improvement that I could star it on my computer and then have the phone sync. Did it always do this?
