Tableau Mobile Help

Tableau Mobile is the fastest way to explore and share content published to Tableau Online or Tableau Server. You can download Tableau Mobile for free from the App Store or Google Play.

App requirements

  • A mobile device with iOS 10 or later, or Android 5 or later.

  • An account on either Tableau Online, or Tableau Server 9.1 or later.

Sign in to Tableau Server or Tableau Online

  1. (iOS only) Tap Sign in.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Enter your Tableau Server name, or select it from the list of recent servers.

    • Tap Tableau Online if you publish your content to a Tableau-hosted site.

  3. (Tableau Server only) If you have access to multiple sites, select the site you want to sign in to.

    To later switch to another site, tap the name of the server you’re signed in to, and then tap the site.

You can interact with published content on any of three tabs.

  • Favorites shows sheets and workbooks that you've chosen for quick access, online or offline.

  • Recents shows up to 12 recently visited workbooks and 12 worksheets.

  • All shows thumbnails for each workbook, as well as each sheet the workbook contains.

Add favorites for quick access or viewing offline

Do either of the following:

  • On the Recents or All tabs, tap the star next to the workbook or view you want to add to Favorites.

  • While looking at an individual view, tap the app menu in the upper-right corner, and then tap Add to Favorites. (If you navigated to the view via the containing workbook, the entire workbook is added to favorites.)

When you start Tableau Mobile, you see a gallery of sample views. Browse the Tableau Gallery to learn how to interact with published views and get inspiration for creating your own elegant dashboards.

  1. Tap a workbook, and then swipe left or right to see snapshot images of each dashboard.

  2. To interact with the data, tap a snapshot image.
