Hi DKG ,
If you want to install Viz alerts then you can go through this forum:VizAlerts .
Here is small description which you can find in the forum.VizAlerts
The great thing about this being a free and open source project VizAlerts uses Python and some Python modules and all the necessary modules are all open source so we can validate the code if we want. This tool does not have to run on the Tableau Server, we can run this from another box if we want to . VizAlerts uses a domain whitelist for sending emails (so we can have only emails in our domain) but not a recipient@domain whitelist. Tableau Server is rendering the views that are delivered by VizAlerts, so we need to have the appropriate hardware resources for the extra load added by VizAlerts. Using this tool we can also control the permissions of who can configure and run alerts (based on file permissions, publishing permissions, and configuring the SQL query that VizAlerts issues to identify what alerts to run) so if you want to lock alerts down to sending to few users .
One challenge is that currently in Tableau (as of v10.0) Subscriptions do not have permissions on them. So it's possible for users to see and choose Subscriptions that are not appropriate for them (or Subscriptions that you have disabled via other means)
This is a listing of some of the interesting alerts / email automation that can be achieved with VizAlerts. Below are some of the links from Tableau community:
Ha that "vizalerts";)
Hot to install Vizalerts on tableau server, will you help me on that?
