    Saving dashboards so others can read them

    gene shackman

      I hope this is basic. How do I save dashboards so others in my group can read them. What are my options? I would like to save a dashboard on our local area network, because these are all me testing things, so I don't want to use Tableau Public. I also don't want to have to ask people to download tableau reader. I would like to make it easy for my colleagues to check out my dashboards to give me feedback.

       

      Any way I can point to some file on our LAN and say, look at this?

       

      I'm using Tableau 10.0 on windows 7. I opened a new dashboard, dragged in a sheet, saved the .twbx file (file / save). Now what do I do?

          Hi,

           

          Do you have tableau server?

          Tableau Server, by Tableau Software®, is an online solution for sharing, distributing, and collaborating on content created in Tableau.

            I don't think we have server. Is tableau on line something different than server? But those are both on line. Is there a way to save a dashboard onto our local network so my colleagues can open the dashboard, without needing to download anything?

             

            Thanks

              For what your demands are, no.

               

              You need one of the following:

              • Tableau Server or Tableau Online (which is Tableau Server hosted by someone else)
              • Tableau Reader
              • Tableau Public (which you've chosen not to use)

              Those are your only options.
