    Is Tableau Reader going away?

    RMueller

      With all the new licensing and product changes that have happened recently, is the Tableau Reader software going away? We have a number of workbooks we share with partners outside our company and they depend on Reader for this information.

       

      The Tableau account team was in our office last week and this question regarding Reader was asked during the meeting -- the account team neither confirmed nor denied that Reader is going away.  However, they did mention that Reader is not "secure".  (IMHO, neither are Excel workbooks "secure" but all companies still use them for reporting purposes...)

       

      If Reader does go away, what are our options for sharing workbooks outside our company?

      Thanks in advance,
