So I am working on some data blending and I know Tableau is supposed to recognize name changes to suggest linking them, but it isn't working for me. I have "period" in data set one and "Year" in data set two. When I rename "Year" into "Period" nothing happens, a little link is supposed to pop up showing that Tableau now recognizes it. I know I can go to data and edit relationships but I am trying to get it to work this way. Thank you.
Never mind I figured it out. When I went to Data>Edit Relationships> and clicked "custom" it turned off the feature. I had to go back to this section and re-click "automatic" in order for Tableau to recognize it.
