    why  dashboard updates the data until it is clicked on the Update data source button?

    Abraham Garcia

      if  i have parameters in a dashboard and i choose some change on the date, the dashboard doesnt update the data until i go to the source data and clicked on the the Update data source button.

       

      How can i resolve this?

       

      Pd. i have many source data in the same workbook

          Hi Abraham,

           

          It sounds like you have an extract filter that uses the Tableau parameter value. I recommend you follow this steps:

           

          1. Remove the current extract

          2. Create a new extract that does not have any filters that the user will change with a parameter

          3. Add the original filters as data source filters

           

          The terminology can get a little confusing, but essentially you want all of the data to be included in the extract. You can then add a data source filter after the extract is complete. It's still called a data source filter because now the extract is the data source.

           

          Hope this answers your question!
