Server Admins: Ability to delete Custom Views

score 58
You have not voted. Active

Right now when custom public views are enabled on workbooks the only person with the ability to remove it is the creator of that view, not the publisher or a server admin. I realize custom views don't give additional permissions but server administrators and the owners of the workbook should have the ability to remove the custom views.


This can be useful for a few reasons:

Your workbook has many users, and many abandoned custom views - Over time views can add up, if many users make them public you have to track down every one and convince them to remove it

A view is out of date - changes to the data or format make the view irrelevant

A view is named poorly - "Tableau Server admins are powerless" or "confidential title here!"
