Question

How to set a different extract refresh schedule for each extract in the same workbook when publishing to Tableau Server or Tableau Online.

Environment

  • Tableau Server
  • Tableau Online

Answer

When publishing a workbook containing multiple data source connections, an extract refresh can be scheduled on the workbook level only. Individual schedules cannot be selected for each data source. To choose a different refresh schedule for each data source, follow these steps:
  1. Publish the data sources. When publishing each data source, choose the desired refresh schedule.
  2. Replace the local connections in the workbook with the published data sources.
  3. Publish the workbook.
