Are Dataflows still only directly driven by dataset updates?



I have a dataflow which needs to be run daily at a particular hour however the underlying dataset is constant. When I try to set up an automatic schedule this doesn't work unfortunately. However, it works with a manual run.


Any help please why is this happening?

    Even a scheduled dataset will not run if the underlying data has not changed.  The way I worked around the issue was to create a workbench job that runs daily at 6am which outputs the current date.  My dataflow includes this dataset to kick off the dataflows I want to run at 6am daily.



  • You should be able to go to the Settings tab in your dataflow to make it run on a schedule
