    Tableau Online - Reader access

    Allen Galbraith

      Hi there,


      I am sure this has been asked a 100 times bit I cant find it in the search results.


      Our company publishes dashboards to the tableau online (paid) service.  Do people have to have a license to see the dashboards?  I am asking as tableau reader is free when your not using the online server.  We would like to share these dashboards with external clients and the way its done right now is that the dash board is packaged and sent to them and the client uses tableau reader to consume.  It would be nice to be able to just send them a link and I am sure we shouldnt have to ask the client to fork out money for an online license...


      And - what is the most cost effective solution  hosting your own Tableau server or Tableau online?
