Connecting to the PostgreSQL will allow you to create custom dashboards/views.
Mark has spent some time on customizing the admin views. Check out these posts to see if they can help.
List of tables in PostgreSQL: Workgroup DatabaseData Dictionary
Then there is this example workbook: | Tableau Public
Is there similar access to the data when using the Tableau Online server?
Yes, same with Tableau Online server.

The view public._tags will give you a nice list of tags, exactly where they are used (workbook or view), and who used it (the report author). I don't know the difference between the columns "taggable_id" and "object_id" but I would use the "object_id" for any joins, like to the "workbooks" and "views" tables (views, too).
I'm currently playing with the db so I don't have any SQL or .twb to present at this time.

After searching for this ability using Tableau Online, I opened a case with customer support and got this reply:
At this time, allowing access to the underlying Postgres database for Tableau Online customers is not a feature built into the product.
Paul - My apologies, I thought it was available for Tableau Online as well.
