My opinions for your reference.
From administrator's point of view, it's a matter of allow or deny.
From user's point of view, it's a matter of necessary or unnecessary.
Allow Deny Necessary Peaceful Claim Unnecessary
- waste of resource
- security problem
- it's too much
- complicated settings rules
Thanks for your reply. But I don't think I understand what you mean? Do you grant users Viewer role instead of Interactor role?
Personally I wouldn't touch the Viewer role (non-interactive dashboards? No thanks).......unless you have a user-based licensing model which for whatever reason requires you to restrict the number of Interactors you can have.
Agree ,I also don't understand the use of Viewer .
it is given to the operational users, who only need to see the current photo or data and with that they can continue to operate, very different from the end users that they must be interactors since they analyze the information to support the decision making
Hi there! Tableau Viewer is for people who require access to analytic insight to perform their job function but prefer to access content that has been created by others. Viewers can be business users who need data to perform many of their daily tasks, to people managers who need to see how their teams are progressing on important projects, to business leaders and executives who need high-level metrics about the health of the business. Please check out this page on our site specifically on Tableau Viewer: What is Tableau Viewer?
The team recently put up a new product page on the Tableau website: Tableau Viewer vs. Tableau Reader. The page includes a wealth of knowledge + super helpful comparison table.
Below is a screenshot, but please visit the page for the most up-to-date and accurate information:
Thank you! Amanda Boyle, Tableau Community Manager
