Step 3: Create Schedules for Flow Tasks

Create a new schedule:

  1. On the Schedules tab, click New Schedule.

  2. Enter the following information in the New Schedule dialog box and click Create.

    • Name: Enter a descriptive name for the schedule. Typically, this includes the description of the schedule frequency.

    • Task Type: Select Flow as the task type.

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

    • Execution: 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.

    • Frequency: You can define an hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly schedule.

Who can do this

Tableau Server Administrators can create and modify schedules. Schedules are created at the server level and apply across all the sites on a server.
