I analyse servicenow data through ServiceNow ITSM connector. I made my extracts already & saved in my local desktop.
Whenever i switch to data source tab or i open the workbook later or at times when i switch back to other worksheets ; The extracts start running again from beginning.
I already extracted & saved the workbook in my local system. I wonder Why does tableau; behaves this way / extracts very often like this ?
Am i missing something or is it the nature of tableau ?
When using Tableau Desktop you have the option to pause the auto updates.
You can find it in the top toolbar, a small cylinder with a a pause sign beside it. Or go to the top bar menu, Worksheet -> Auto Update and uncheck selections.
Hope this helps.
