This release is an important update to address the following product issues in Tableau 8.1 and 8.1.1. All Salesforce extracts that were created in 8.0, 8.1, or 8.1.1 or were upgraded to these versions may contain corrupt or inaccurate data. Refreshing the extracts using Tableau 8.1.2 corrects the issue. Scheduled and manual refreshes will be forced to become a full refresh initially. Subsequent refreshes will return to incremental as originally specified. In Tableau Desktop, you will be prompted to refresh Salesforce extracts before continuing to use the workbook. Make sure to save the workbook to ensure correct data when the workbook is opened again later. On Tableau Server, original views will remain available with inaccurate data until the extracts are refreshed.

To format these columns with the percent symbol (%), right-click the field and select Default Properties > Number Format. Then select Number (Custom) and add the percent symbol as a suffix.
