    Data-driven alerts in Tableau Online with live connection

    Danail Georgiev



      I have configured an alert based on a dashboard with a live connection.

      It seems the alert threshold condition is only checked when data is refreshed, i.e.:

      - when someone opens the dashboard and the caching session has expired

      - when someone clicks the Refresh button


      My questions:

      - is this the documented behaviour of data-driven alerts?

      - considering there is no way to automate refresh of live connection data within Tableau Online, how can we use data-driven alerts in a reliable manner?
