Hi Guys,

I am working on tableau to build reports where i am connecting to multiple tables from a single data source and this is very slow in  performance 
Note: this is all live connection (this requirement cant be changed).

I thought to connect to these different tables and make a Alteryx workflow and connect to tableau , will this be a live connection? as per my knowledge it will be a an extract which we need to schedule to get the latest data.
can it be live is there any processes or any approach.

 

 

I appreciate your help in advance.....

 

 

Thank you.

Great! 

A good approach is to use the WDC for Tableau Macro (You can find it in the Gallery (https://gallery.alteryx.com/#!app/Web-Data-Connector-for-Tableau/570e7306aa690a170c445534)

I use this method for similar cases and works perfectly.

 

Hope this helps.

Best,
