Why is my Lever Talent Intelligence data not updating?
Any actions made in Lever may take up to 24 hours to refresh and be reflected in Lever Talent Intelligence (see the FAQ on data refresh cadence above). On rare occasions, this refresh may not completed as planned. As a result, you might not see new data in your dashboards. We have automated warnings to alert Lever's engineering team when this happens, and these incidents are usually resolved within 24 hours. If your LTI account does not appear to be updated by 1:00 PM PDT the following day, we advise that you contact Lever's Support team.

Why are "null" values appearing in my worksheets and dashboards?
Null values indicate that there is no data in Lever that corresponds with that field. For example, a null value when viewing a workbook broken down by Posting Team would indicate that there are job posting(s) in Lever that have not been assigned to a team.


You can quickly identify the culprit job posting(s) by either drilling into the data within Lever Talent Intelligence or by going to the Jobs page in Lever and looking at all job postings assigned to the 'Unspecified' team. Once you have updated the field(s), the data sources, worksheets, and dashboards within Lever Talent Intelligence will update within 24-48 hours.

What should I do if I receive an error message when attempting to open downloaded workbooks?
For errors using Tableau Desktop, if you are receiving an error message when attempting to open a workbook downloaded from Lever Talent Intelligence, double check to verify that you have installed the latest version of Tableau Desktop. Workbooks can only be opened in Tableau Desktop version 10.1.3 or newer.

For errors using Tableau Reader, when opening a workbook downloaded from Tableau Server in Tableau Reader, the following error might occur: Unknown data source class 'sqlproxy'. This occurs because the workbook is using a live connection to a data source published to Tableau Server. Tableau Reader cannot open workbooks or .twbx files that use a live connection to data. In order to successfully open a downloaded workbook, extract the data from the data source via Tableau Desktop prior to opening the workbook in Tableau Reader.
