Tableau Mobile Overview

Welcome to the all-new Tableau Mobile. We've completely redesigned the app, making it faster to find content you're looking for and easier to discover data insights on the go.

App requirements

  • A mobile device with iOS 11 or later, or Android 5 or later

  • An account on either Tableau Online or Tableau Server 10.0 and later.

Change app settings or switch sites

  1. Navigate to the Favorites screen, and tap the dots (...) in the upper-right corner.
  2. Tap Settings to change app defaults, or tap Sign Out to access a different Tableau site.

What's new

Quickly find content

Easily access favorites

See multiple favorites at once, with newly added favorites right at the top.

Browse content with hierarchy-based navigation

Tap Explore to browse your site's Tableau content. Start with the list of top-level projects, and then choose one to instantly access its sub-projects, workbooks, and views.

Tip: To see all projects, workbooks, and views, tap the blue numbers on the right side of the screen.

Likewise, when you tap a workbook, you can choose from thumbnails for all of its views. If a workbook contains only a single view, that view immediately opens. (You can override this default in the app settings.)

When you're looking at an individual view within a workbook, tap the views icon to quickly open another view.

Search across all projects, workbooks, and views

Search works across your entire site and shows results sorted by projects, workbooks, and views, just like the project-navigation interface.

See interactive previews, online or offline

If you use Tableau Online or Tableau Server 2018.2 or later, Tableau Mobile stores all of your favorites as fast-loading interactive previews. Interactive previews are available even when your device is offline, letting you explore data wherever you go.

Interactive previews let you scroll, pan, and zoom a viz, see data tooltips, and highlight marks in multiple dashboard objects. However, the following features aren't available: filtering, combined tooltips for multiple selected marks, Viz-in-Tooltip, and advanced analytics like trend and reference lines.

To get full functionality when you're connected to the network, simply tap Go Live.

If you prefer to always load the Live view, you can turn off previews in the app settings. (Tableau Server administrators sometimes disable previews for entire organizations.)

Note: Static image previews appear if you use Tableau Server 2018.1 or earlier. Though these aren't interactive, they still provide helpful access to data views when you’re offline. For particularly complex views, you might see static previews on newer servers too; if this happens a lot, ask your Tableau administrator to adjust client-side rendering settings.

Links to other Tableau views now open directly in Tableau Mobile rather than a browser, so you don't need to switch back to the app. You'll particularly appreciate this if your organization uses groups of dashboard links that help you navigate to other Tableau content.

Enjoy identical features on both Android and iOS

Regardless of whether you use Android or iOS, you browse, search, and use other Tableau Mobile features in exactly the same way.
