The Tableau Explorers Explorers are your modern business users - your mobilizing force for change. They may not have analyst in their title, but they’re comfortable with data. They’re looking to move their businesses forward and need to probe deeper into the data to find answers to their own questions. Tableau strives to deliver the same experience on all browsers; however, each browser renders web pages differently. Client-side rendering is supported in Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 or newer.

  3. Users with Explorer or Viewer roles cannot use this feature. If you’re using Role Based Subscriptions with Tableau Server or Tableau Online, you can simplify your license management using login-based license management to eliminate separate Tableau Desktop and Tableau Prep Builder product keys.

You need to obtain a Tableau Desktop license. See the Tableau Desktop alternate download site to install the appropriate version. Workbooks created in a later version of Tableau Desktop cannot be published to earlier versions of Tableau Server. For example, workbooks created in Desktop 9.1 cannot be published to Tableau Server 9.0.

Afterwards, please review the Publishing & Security section of this website.

A Tableau Desktop license is not required. You may use the free Tableau Reader. However, the appropriate report viewer roles must be assigned by the report publisher.

Tableau Explorer: analyse trusted data and answer your own questions faster

Tableau Explorer users are modern business users, focused on driving change and improvement. They may not have an analyst in their job title, but they are certainly familiar with data. Tableau Explorers want to move their business forward and need to dig deeper into the data to find answers to their own questions. These answers are often beyond the bounds of prebuilt reports.

Explorer users likely receive reports from others and combine them with different data points to tailor the dashboards to their needs. They are often already familiar with pivot tables and lookups. Tableau Explorers want to ask and answer their own data questions.

With this license can create new workbooks from data sources published by the Tableau Creator users. They can also continue to work from existing workbooks and dashboards, via a mobile device or the browser. Tableau Explorers will ask and answer strategic questions that may not have been answered in the first reporting round. All this with the ultimate goal of making decisions faster.
