We have a desktop application that we build and support. In this application are several crystal reports that accept input parameters passed in from the application and print out on preprinted forms like IRS documents or medical claim forms i.e. CMS 1500, DWC10, and UB04. Can tableau run client side and work in the same manner as the crystal reports we use today? Today we use the Crystal Reports for Visual Studio libraries to generate the reports client side. Many of these reports are run in batch mode printing onto hundreds of the preprinted forms at a time.
I am not sure how the sheets, dashboards or stories can accomplish this task. Are there any examples showing how to do this?
Short and sweet answer to this is "no", sorry.
Tableau is a visual analytics tool with no real capabilities to recreate complex form clones. You should stick with Crystal for this work.
