Yes, no limits that I've seen. Server is generally backwards compatible with older versions of Desktop and previously published reports.
Sure. Tableau 6.1 can publish to 6.X workbook to a 7.0 Server. No limitations, but maybe if you give me an example of something you're worried about I can give you better information.
Russell...If you are using User Filters...your desktop will not be able to communicate with server 7.0. This is what we have found anyway.
Thanks Ed -
I assumed that the question was didn't include "...and continue to use the workbook from 6.X Desktop against the 7.0 Server after it is published". A mistake!
Just so I'm clear, which scenario are you seeing this in?:
- 6.x workbook in Server1 (6.5) republished to Server2 (7)
- 6.x workbook in Server1 (6.5), Server1 upgraded to 7
- Something else
Want to make sure we have a bug on this...
Cancel my previous post...yes, you can use 6.1 desktop to post to 7.0 even when User Filters exist. Too much testing lately and I got my scenarios mixed up.
I'll buy that for a dollar! :)
So if a user does publish a workbook from Desktop 6.x to Server 7.0, what limitations will the user face after that, in terms of continuing to use that workbook? Is there a point where the user will have to upgrade to Desktop 7.0 in order to keep interacting with the workbook on the server? I have many clients who are likely to face this situation -- and while I don't expect that they will have many issues upgrading their version of Desktop, I want to be sure I'm giving them good information.
