Hide fields

Hide fields that you don't need to clean while still including them in your flow output. You can hide fields at any time and Tableau Prep won't generate the data for those fields until your run the flow to create your flow output. All hidden fields are marked with a hidden fields icon. View a list of hidden fields in the Hidden Fields profile card. This card is automatically generated when you hide fields in your flow.
