    Tableau reader and Tableau public implementation options

    Philip George



      I have created one dashboard and saved it as packaged workbook.There are 2 users who has tableau reader installed in the machine.The data source which is sitting in a remote location will get updated every week.Tableau dashboard will be connecting to that data source.Users want to see the updated data every week.


      Is there any way the data behind the dashboard can be updated using tableau reader?or do I need to use tableau desktop everytime to fetch the data,save as workbook and send through mail?


      Is there any other implementation option without using tableau server in this case?


      If I use Tableau public in this case,Can I make the dashboard visible to specific users or hide from others if I am the author?What kind of security can be provided in Tableau public cloud?


      Many thanks in advance
