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. See Replacing a Data Source for more information.
  3. Publish the workbook.
