Hey Tableau Community!
I have ran into an issue and I want to know if there is a way around it. I am working on a live updated dashboard, meaning it pulls new data from a sql database everyday to update to our current situation. For one of the viz that I want to add to the dash (a radial pie chart) I had to create a new file in order to get the proper information and now it isn't synced to the database because of that. I still would like to you use the viz however because I think it is really powerful which leads me to my question. Is it possible to link the viz to another worksheet that is showing the same data in a different way in order to get it to continuously update? In other words it would be a viz of a viz.... Possible?
Hi Michaela, you should be able to use the same SQL data for both your main viz and your secondary viz. You shouldn't have to export the data into a file, you can do the necessary transformations in Tableau. To get more help, please save your workbook as a TWBX, then extract both the SQL data and the secondary file data, re-save the TWBX, and post here.
