    Dashboard Color Scheme Changes When Dashboard Extract Refreshes

    J Workman

      My dashboard is published to Tableau Server. It is populated nightly by running custom SQL and storing an extract. When I publish the dashboard, I have a designated color scheme which matches other reporting elsewhere. When the extract refreshes overnight, the color scheme changes. Is there a way to remedy this? I gather from other posts that something weird is happening with the calculated fields. But this seems like a very basic thing which I shouldn't have to try overcoming by using parameters. I should just be able to designate a color scheme at the worksheet level, and if worksheets share a data source, the scheme should carry over automatically despite an extract refresh.

       

      I have included a dummy workbook, hopefully with the same methodology on calculated fields as the extract on my Tableau server.
