Replace dataset that has many beastmode calculations

Have a very large dataset (5M rows) from a connector that we need to clean up by exporting the data, de-duping and replacing the dataset. The dataset has a large number of saved beast mode calculations (2 dozen). Will the beast mode caculations be preserved when we reload the data?

    I'm unaware of a way to replace a separate datasource via Excel.  Uploading via Excel would end up creating a new dataset, which means the beast modes wouldn't carry over.

    Beast modes are saved to the dataset regardless of the number of rows in the dataset.  As long as the data you reload replaces exactly the same dataset, and isn't a swap for a new dataset, then yes, the beast modes will remain.

  • Thanks. One more wrinkle.

     

    The original dataset was created and is updated daily by the Five9 connector. The plan is to export it to a csv, dedup the csv, reload it with workbench and then have the connector continue to append rows daily. Does that add any issues?
