    How to restrict users to the comment field on the server?

    Diana Lukaschuk

      Dear all,


      please help!

      I use one Dashboard where I have different countries having only access to their countries data.

      The comment field would be very useful for them to use but if one countries does make a comment then the others should not see it.


      How to solve that?


      Thanks for your help in advance.

          no way to do that w/o hacking or writing a custom app.

          fortunately, there was a session at TC16 by ALEXIS GUINEBERTIERE on this very topic


          Turning Any Dashboard into a Comment Database

          To kick off this action-packed developer-oriented session, we will use a commenting app that lets end users annotate marks. You will see how to expand what Tableau can do with write-backs and mash-ups. We’ll dive into the nuts and bolts of hooking up a viz to a web application, and review some technical pitfalls when deploying to Server. Along the way we’ll also build a simple Ruby on Rails comments app in minutes that you can bring home and apply to your own workbooks.
