Create or Modify a Schedule

Tableau Server on Windows now includes Tableau Services Manager (TSM), which replaces the Configuration Utility and the tabadmin command line tool. If you need help for an earlier version of Tableau Server, see the Tableau Help page.

The Schedules page shows a list of schedules, including their name, type, what they’re for (scope), number of tasks, behavior (concurrent or serial processing), and when they are scheduled to run.

To create a new schedule

  1. In a site, click Schedules.

  2. Click New Schedule.

  3. Specify a descriptive Name for the schedule. For example, End of week.

  4. Select a Task type the schedule will handle—refreshing extracts, running flows, or delivering subscriptions.

  5. Optionally you can define a Default Priority from 1 to 100, where 1 is the highest priority. This is the priority that will be assigned to the tasks by default. If two tasks are pending in the queue, the one with the higher priority runs first.

  6. Choose whether a schedule will run in parallel or serially. Schedules that run in parallel run on all available backgrounder processes so that they can complete faster.

  7. Finish defining the schedule. You can define an hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly schedule.

  8. Click Create.

To modify an existing schedule

  1. Navigate to the Schedules page.

  2. Select an existing schedule, click the Actions drop-down arrow, and then select Edit Settings.

  3. Finish editing the schedule, and click Save.
