    Can multiple users of Tableau Desktop Publish the same workbook?

    Daniel Jackson

      Hi all,

       

      I'm very new to Tableau and so this question may be elementary, but I appreciate the help. 

       

      Scenario:  I've created a workbook in Tableau Desktop that I publish to Tableau Server. Co-worker with a Tableau Desktop license would like to be able to enter the workbook, refresh extracts, make edits if needed, and then publish that same workbook.  I've run into errors when I try to publish a workbook that is already published by the co-worker.

       

      Question: If I have created and published a workbook to Tableau Server, can a different user edit that book and refresh the extracts and then re-publish it?  Do I have to adjust permissions?

       

      Thanks,
