Use Cases / Replacing Values

   Replacing Values

What is Replacing Values?

While everyone strives to have fully automatic data pipelines, we have all come across situations where occasionally data is not the best quality or there is simply too much of a delay to be able to retrieve it. Being able to replace a particular value enables users to keep carrying out the analysis rather than waiting for fixes in the source. At the same time, keeping manual data with replaced values separate from automatic data ensures we can make the best use of each use case and keep it governed.

Challenges

This feature is not provided by Tableau, meaning that whenever you want to replace a value, you cannot do it straight from the dashboard and you have to resort to a third-party tool, introducing a barrier to analysis, and causing delays.

How can Write-Back help you

With Write-Back, you no longer have to worry about all this. You can start replacing values straight from the dashboard in a very intuitive flow. Besides this, Write-Back can automatically trigger a data refresh so that the new value is immediately displayed and considered in any analysis. This means you can open new use cases for Tableau and keep users in the analytical flow at the same time as supplying manual input and replace values.

Replacing values is sometimes vital to data accuracy; Write-back enables you to do it simply and easily while staying governed.
