    Custom Daily Schedule Refresh

    Amit Kaushal

      Need to set up a schedule starting on 10th of every month with daily refresh capability till end of month. Is this possible ?

          The simple answer is no, not out of the box.



          Though, you can potentially do this via a custom script that is triggered via task scheduler on the server itself.  The script would look something like this.  Here is the syntax for tabcmd.  tabcmd Commands


          for /F "usebackq tokens=1,2 delims==" %%i in (`wmic os get LocalDateTime /VALUE 2^>NUL`) do if '.%%i.'=='.LocalDateTime.' set ldt=%%j

          set dayofmonth=%ldt:~6,2%

          echo %ldt%

          echo %dayofmonth%


          IF %dayofmonth% LSS 10 (

             GOTO END_PROC )


          cd x:\Tableau\Tableau Server\your_version\bin

          tabcmd login...

          tabcmd refreshschedule...

          tabcmd logout

            Another option would be to create a schedule for each day of the month (or from the 10th onwards) and then add each of these schedules to the workbook / Data source to be refreshed. (so that it has 20 odd schedules assigned to it)

            Not sure that this is a better options than Jeff's though!!


            Also, just checked out my Task Scheduler on my Windows 10 PC, and I have the following options re scheduling. This may also work, running a tabcmd batch file


            All the best
