I have a dashboard on which I would like to display an image which will change depending on which Tableau Server user is viewing it. I would like this image to be displayed as the dashboard is loaded not as the result of an action.
This seems to be straightforward in Tableau Desktop where I can use <User Name> within the web page URL. So if I am logging in to Tableau Server as ‘Test’ and my URL is set to C:\<User Name>.jpg then Tableau Destop will display file C:\local\DPG_Demo.jpg.
However I can’t get this to display images stored on our Tableau Server. Is this possible?
I’ve also tried CURRENTUSER() within a Calculated Field to build a URL address for a web page but Tableau doesn’t seem to like calculated fields in the URL (but it does work with parameters).
