Data Blocks is a great feature (available in the Advanced Mode only) that creates multiple data extracts for your Tableau workbook or dashboard.
The Cognetik Cloud Connector essentially mashes up multiple data extracts into one data extract, which simplifies the setup and management of these data extracts.
There are three new items:
1. Add Data Block Button.
2. Data Block Name
3. Data Block Column Prefix
Below are a few screenshots on how the new feature works.
💡 You can apply segments at the Data Block level if the connector supports it.
💡 The date range and granularity options are common between all Data Blocks, any updates made here will be reflected in each Data Block.
💡 When the data is returned, you’ll see empty/null values in the columns where there is no corresponding row data.
💡 We recommend grouping your dimensions and metrics in Tableau to keep your data organized and easy to use.
