    Distributing Individualized Tableau Reader Reports

    Kent Sloan

      Hi Everyone,


      I am looking to buy Tableau server licenses for regional managers and send filtered Tableau reader files to individual store managers weekly. I know if I buy a server license for each store manager I can set filters on what they can view but I can't justify the cost. Any ideas on how to distribute Tableau reader files that allow each viewer to see their individual performance and the overall performance but not the performance of other specific stores? Below are the two ideas I have come up with so far.


      1. Password based filter to see individual performance (a search based filter similar to wildcard match that only returns exact matches).


      2. Some how automate creating large numbers of uniquely filtered Tableau Reader files that are then emailed out individually.
