Date fields Changes to String when send to Tableau server

The date column in my data gets converted to string when published to Tableau Server. Previous question on the same issue suggested this was a known issue. Any solutions please?

Hello @SeemaK -

It seems like you already found a previous forum post about this. I’ll link it here for the benefit of others:

Since that post, we’ve finished the update to Date&Time fields in KNIME, but Tableau made some significant changes on their end to the way it handles imported files in version 10.5. I can tell you we’re actively working on our Tableau integration, but for now, KNIME is still exporting dates as strings to Tableau.
