I have been using tableau on Win 8 for quite a while without any issues. They should be good to go. They obviously have not released a metro app as yet, and i have not heard of any plans on that end, but the desktop app works great.
Do you know how to embed a view in a metro app?
Server and Desktop are fine on Win8.
As for embedding a view: all I can think of would be using the metro-IE and having it show a view from server.
As an aside, the visualisations and presentation throughout the metro Finance app is pretty good I think. I've been pondering what opportunities there are to use Tableau (or "something") to be able to present things in that way.
I am in the midst of upgrading from 7 to 8. When I put Tableau 8 on my Dell tablet (running Windows 8) and opened up a workbook, I noticed that fields, tables, etc. on dashboards were displaying with odd format- mostly large blackouts and funny reactions when clicking on a particular table cell. Did you experience similar issues when upgrading a Tableau 7 file to Tableau 8 on Windows 8?
Apparently, this has something to do with accelerated graphics. As per Tableau Support:
When black boxes appear in a visualization within Tableau
Desktop 8, it is often a result of a rendering issue. Many rendering issues in
Tableau 8 are caused by using OpenGL accelerated graphics. As a troubleshooting
step, please try disabling accelerated graphics by performing the following:
- Open Tableau Desktop
- Go to Help > Accelerated Graphics > Disable 3.
Close Tableau Desktop 4. Re-open Tableau Desktop and try to reproduce the issue
The Accelerated Graphics feature is meant to speed up the
drawing process of displaying marks by using the computer's graphics processing
unit (GPU). Depending on the machine, there may be rendering issues when using
accelerated graphics. For more information, please refer to the following
