    Make modifications to dashboards without using web authoring

    Martin Krahl Vitale

      I am a Tableau newby and I have a requirement where i need to let users make basic modifications to existing dashboards, but since the users will not have any tableau knowledge I can´t embed web authoring in my application (it will be too complex for them)...So, I'm wondering if there is any other alternative to this problem...some things I would allow to users to do is, for example, change the dashboard visualization type (equivalent to the "Show me" button in web authoring) ,change some the value of some filters and change the type/size of the fonts.

       

      Is there any API or something to manage my requirement? Could making manual changes to the xml file associated with the dashboard be an alternative?

       

      I really appreciate any help you can give me,

      Martín
