Thanks for the feedback, and I'm glad you like it.
It looks like we have have a couple of things to fix, so I'll get them on our list. I've heard a few of these before, and we've got some good ideas about how to make it better.
Another problem that I've run into on the mobile app was zooming on a map that has a background image. When you use your fingers to zoom it just zooms in on the whole page.
I thought this fit the iPad Quirks Header, but if it would be more apropriate I can start a seperate post.
I've run into a case where a published version of one of our workbooks opens fine on a pc, and on an android smartphone, but when trying to open it on an iPad, through the browser, not the app, all the user gets is the spinning 'wait' circle.
Becuase of the security we use, we do not let users log into the server, we embed the workbooks in an iframe and the user views them on a web page. Since this is the case the user cannot use the iPad app.
I was hoping someone had an idea as to why this could be.
Also, does anyone know if there are there any other limitations I should be aware of, when publishing this way, if I'm expecting users to view the workbooks on multiple devices?
Any luck with this issue? I too have the dreaded spinning circle. Our users are using the iPad app however and the behavior is not consistent. Our model is set of tables with a few filters. The desktop version and web version all work flawlessly but when viewed on the iPad performance decreases slightly and the spinning circle starts to show up. This occurs on both WIFI and LTE connections.
No. We've determined that the workbook works on some iPads and doesn't work on others. Due to the inconsistency we are not promoting our Tableau workbooks for iPad, only PC.
It looks like in the latest Mobile iPad update they tried to address something related to the spin. Problem is, it seems to have created another problem and now my users can't login in at all! They keep getting brought back to the login screen. One step forward, two steps back.
I just tried to reproduce your 5th case (zooming with multiple maps on a dashboard) with version 8.0 of Tableau Server, and it seems to be working fine for me.
Hi Allison, I think the fonts issue has to do with the server piece. Your server needs to have the same fonts available that you were using on the desktop, if not it replaces them with another font.

We are using the mobile app and our parameters drop downs render very nicely, but a quick filter drop down has disappeared. Has anyone else encountered this?
