Keep Your Data Fresh with Tableau Online's New Sync Client Feature

Tableau Online's new Online Sync Client is here! This highly-anticipated feature will make it easier to keep your on-premise and cloud application data fresh in Tableau Online. With the release of Tableau Desktop 9.0.1, you are now able to start a small client on your desktop that will periodically recreate an existing published extract, and republish it on your behalf to Tableau Online.

Check out a preview of this feature here:

To get this capability, download and install Tableau Desktop 9.0.1 for Windows. The Sync Client is pre-configured to work directly with Tableau Online. Just log in to your site, connect your client to the published data extracts you want to refresh, and you’re all set.
