Suggestions on how to run some Tableau Writer nodes with delay

Hey guys, pretty new to the forum so be gentle. :smiley:

I’m having the following problem. I have a workflow that refreshes multiple extracts from a Tableau Dashboard that I publish. When I refresh the workflow I have to wait for each Tableau Writer node to execute in order to try and run the next one because if I run them all at the same time, the first one will execute and the following 4-5 nodes will get an error. I’ve been reading about the catch error nodes but I can’t seem to find a solution.

Having to wait for each node to Execute is killing my automation of the process :slight_smile:

Is there a way I can make them run one after the other finishes?

Thank you in advance!

hi @sergiu_irimescu and welcome!

I suppose you have a corresponding order of output nodes, which should be exexuted in sequence.
If you connect these nodes one after another by flow variable ports, the sequence of execution should be forced. So you would have to run the workflow just once.

In this example Node 16 will be executed before Node 17. So Node 17 waits for Node 16.

Hope, this helps, Greetz!

If you need an additional waiting period between the node executions, take a look at the Wait node.
