    how to add images from network locations to a view

    Kornel Kovacs

      Hi All,

       

      I hope i'm posting in the right place, would like to find out if there is a way to add images to sheets / views / dashboards from a network drive location.

       

      I have a set of 25000 SKUs=rows in my database.

      I have for each SKU an image saved under a mapped network path (e.g.: "Z:\image").

       

      e.g.:

      SKU of first product="ABC111"

      SKU of second product="ABC112"

      the images with the network path would be:

      Z:\image\ABC111.png

      Z:\image\ABC112.png

       

       

      Is there a way for me to bring in the images in my views?

      An added twist, the images are being refreshed randomly(the file gets overwritten with the same name), I need to show latest image available on the drive the point in time when the tableau workbook gets refreshed.

       

      Thank you for the help in advance!

       

      BR,
