Tableau WDC connector Design Mode option!

Design Mode returns the first request of the following tables:

  • channelProgress
  • contentProgress
  • courseDailyUsage
  • courseProgress

To activate Design Mode, In the Pluralsight Tableau Connector Window after you enter your api key, check the box next to Design Mode. When you are in Design Mode you will see a Table called _DESIGN_MODE. This is the visual indicator that Design Mode is active. It also has a description and a list of tables affected.

Once your workbook is ready to publish, or you want to retrieve all data locally you will need to pull it out of Design Mode. Depending on where you are in the app you will need to Edit Data Source and finally Edit Connection. This will show the Pluralsight Tableau Connector window. Paste the apiKey and leave the Design Mode uncheck and Pull Data. You should see the _DESIGN_MODE table disappear in the Table list. You are now out of design mode and the Workbook should pull all data.

If you would like to put the Workbook back in Design Mode, repeat the process above and check the Design Mode checkbox.

Some things to consider:

  • At this point Design Mode only works with Tableau Desktop, it will not work on Tableau Public.
  • If you publish your Workbook to the server in Design Mode, it should ignore this setting on the server and pull all data. However, this needs to be tested.
  • We are not expecting this to affect existing Workbooks.
