    How to Update Tableau with New Dimensions/Measures?

    Chad Clauson

      Sorry for the noob question but I've recently started a long ongoing project and there will be many columns that will be added or changed. The table names and column names will remain the same. At the moment I have my workbooks and data sources published as extracts on tableau server with daily refreshes. My question is how to have my local workbooks update with the newest columns when we implement them in SQL Server. We deal with millions of records every day. Clicking the refresh button updates with the latest data in my visualizations but doesn't give me the newest columns. I obviously don't want to have to create new extracts every time as that will become insanely slow. What am I missing?
