    Better documentation / warnings about Tableau Desktop requesting Accessibility (Privacy) access on Mac OS (Mojave and later)?

    Brendon Troy

      I've noticed since installing the latest MacOS (10.14, MacOS "Mojave") that I get a poorly-worded (and frankly slightly alarming) notification early on in my usage of Tableau Desktop that warns something to the effect of, "Tableau wants to change your Privacy settings". I've granted them, since I generally trust Tableau, but I wish more information was available somewhere explaining what this is for. I presume it has to do with file system access or something similar that Tableau Desktop needs, maybe?

      Screenshot of the setting to which I was taken when I clicked on the alert:
