    Downloading Live Tableau Online Datasources as CSVs

    Rory Wallis

      Hi all,

       

      Sorry if this is a duplicate. I've done a lot of searching and haven't found anything that addresses my needs.

       

      As part of our Tableau Online site, I'm wanting to host 'approved' data sources that people can interrogate and use for themselves. The data sources are hosted live in Online and aren't necessarily connected to dashboards.

       

      I'd like for people to be able to download the data sources as CSVs. I appreciate that Tableau allows users to play around with the data and create graphs etc. but sometime a good old Excel file is all you need. When I try to download the data sources I'm only given the option to download as a tdsx.

       

      Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

       

      Rory
