When you place a field on a shelf, Tableau generates the resulting view by querying the data source.
When you create a dense data view that involves many fields, these queries can be time-consuming.
You can also turn automatic updates on and off by pressing F10 (Option-Command-0 on a Mac) on your keyboard.
You can update the view at any time while automatic updates are off by pressing F9 (Shift-Command-0 on a Mac) or clicking the button on the toolbar.
As the window of Change settings shows up, under Important updates, click the bar of Install updates automatically (recommended).
Then, in the drop-down menu, choose one from Download updates but let me choose whether to install them, Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them and Never check for updates (not recommended). BTW, the option of Install updates automatically (recommended) is also provided in the menu.
And of course, when you are back home from the trip, don't forget to check that the metered connection setting is off, to allow the updates to resume and go on as usual.
You can also keep automatic downloads enabled but make sure that your device never uses your mobile data for automatic downloads to save data.Note: It is possible to enter an invalid state when automatic updates are turned off.When this happens, the view is desaturated and invalid commands are disabled.The view and commands become available again when you click on the toolbar.For example, the view below has automatic updates turned off.However, it is sometimes more efficient for Tableau to execute the queries you need only for your final view, rather than for every intermediate step required to compose that view.You can turn off updates for worksheets by clicking the toolbar button.You can instruct Tableau to turn off automatic updates to improve performance.By default, automatic updates are turned on and the toolbar button is highlighted .The Windows system will install updates automatically after its setup, which, to some extent, influences the computer's working speed and makes users restless.In addition, many users dislike having some updates automatically installed and want to install them by themselves.
