Using the Preview Function in Tableau

Preview your query before creating an extract in Tableau

You can now Preview your request before creating a data extract in Tableau. This will allow you to explore the data quicker and confirm you have the correct data.

Preview runs quickly because the processing is done by Cognetik’s distributed API engine and does not require waiting for Tableau to create a local database for the extract.

The preview section offers a few features to make data exploration easier:

1. Search

2. Sorting

3. Pagination


Advanced Mode

To preview the query in Advanced Mode, click the Preview button as shown below.




Wizard Mode

In the Wizard Mode, the preview section is automatically populated once the last step is reached.
