I have a number of workbooks that are to be updated weekly each Monday.

What I'm hoping to achieve is that these workbooks update and save themselves each Monday to save me going into each workbook to kick off the refresh.

Is there a way for me to achieve this? Is FTP the answer here potentially? A concern I have is that these reports feed into Tableau so it's important the name of the file itself does not change.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

hi there,  not sure if this is still relevant but the company I work for (Daexus) has a web data connector that enables scheduled refreshed for Adobe Analytics in Tableau using Tableau Server or Tableau Online.

The tool is ultra secure, only runs on users' computer so data is not passed through any external servers.

I'm happy to provide more info - find the connector link our website here and I'm also posting a tutorial on how to set an automated schedule in Tableau.

 

Hope this helps!
