    Unable to delete extra scheduled refreshes

    Nathan Williams

      I am relatively new to Tableau and accidentally set up too many scheduled refreshes, but I am not able to delete the extra ones. I have included a screen shot. noDelete.PNG

      Any ideas or suggestions about how to fix this would be much appreciated.

          Hi Nathan,


          All of those schedules are created by default in Tableau Online so you cannot create or delete them.


          Do you mean you have a data source/workbook being refreshed too many time?


          If you want to delete a scheduled refresh for a specific data source here is one way to do it:


          In the schedules tab you are in in the screenshot look at the tasks field. If there is a number > 0 it means that there is an data source using this schedule. Select the Schedule and you will get a list of workbooks/data sources using this schedule. Select the "..." beside the data source/workbook and select "Delete". This will remove the data source from this refresh schedule.
