Tableau - How to Publish a View, Workbook or Dashboard with Last Refreshed Date and Time

This page will help Tableau customers to publish a view, workbook or Dashboard with data with last refresh time. Customers who need time and date for the data update will benefit.

If you want to add last data refresh (a time stamp) to a view in a dashboard or workbook, please follow the steps listed below:

Open the workbook that contains the dashboard in Tableau Desktop, and then navigate to the sheet for which you want to display the time of the last data refresh.

  1. Select Worksheet > Show Title.
  2. Double-click the title.
  3. In the Edit Title dialog box, select Insert > Data Update Time, and then click OK.

The Data Update Time value depends on the type of connection:

  • Extract-based connections display the last time the extract was refreshed.
  • Live database connections display the last time the data source was refreshed.
  • Live file-based connections display the last time the file was updated.

This is from the Tableau community page. Please see https://community.tableau.com/thread/212116 for additional information.
