    Running an R script upon pressing a button in Tableau

    Thomas van den Hurk

      I am looking for a specific application of the Tableau and R connection. I have done quite some research on the internet and on the forums but I have not come across the right solution yet. Preferably, I like to run an R script from a button in Tableau. This R script writes to a csv file which should be loaded back into Tableau for further use (would be convenient if this could be conducted upon pressing this same button). I figured that this is not possible to do with calculated fields (the SCRIPT_* functions). Is there any other way that I could run an R script from a Tableau dashboard without using calculated fields? I am using Tableau desktop.
