    Templates

    hina.waheed.0

      Hello,

       

      I wanted to create a template that could be used company wide. Is there a way to create a template that has all the formatting already completed and all you have to do is add datasource?

       

      If there are other ways to make this possible please let me know

       

      Thank you

          There isn't much you can do in Tableau without data.  I suppose you could create a skeleton Dashboard with containers and text boxes, but you can't populate it with anything if you don't have data.

           

          The only way I can think of is to build a real workbook with real data (or fake data that has the same structure as your real data) and then teach people how to swap data sources.

           

          Tableau does not have a native "template" architecture.
