    Tableau Prep and Tableau Bridge

    Tim Zalk

      Does anyone know how the interaction with Tableau Prep and Tableau Bridge works? I have Tableau Online with daily scheduled refreshes connected to various data sources. If I rebuild the data sources in Tableau Prep, and publish and replace the data sources in Tableau Desktop, will the flow run with each scheduled refresh? I feel like it almost defeats the purpose if I have to open Prep each time I want to run the flow. Most of what it does for cleaning and joining can be done in Tableau Desktop already, just with more complex custom SQL and calculated fields.


      I was unable to find good info on this in the documentation. All I see is a vague "you can publish your exported flow to Tableau Server and Tableau Online."
