How can we manage the jurisdiction to correct or add data ? 2021-02-12T15:14:36+01:00

Within the management console administrators will be able to create groups and assign permissions to the groups. 

What databases are supported by the Write back extension? 2021-02-12T15:14:29+01:00

We are currently supporting: MySQL, SQL Server, PostgreSQL  and Snowflake. But we are working on other databases. Check out more on our product page: https://appsfortableau.com/writebackextreme/

Can extensions be used with Tableau Online? 2021-02-12T15:14:14+01:00

Yes! Only for WriteBack Extreme it will be harder because you need a server to host it.

When does SuperTables loads the data when using the pop-up option? 2021-02-12T15:15:28+01:00

It loads data on popup, but on Tableau Server/Online you can keep the popup open and mark selections will only update the data. So in case of performance, nothing changes when the popup is opened.

When were the new features added to the SuperTables extension? 2021-02-12T15:15:57+01:00

Last weeks, you can find the changelog with release dates here: https://appsfortableau.com/support/changelogs/
