Tableau Community Planning

This content is part of Tableau Blueprint—a maturity framework allowing you to zoom in and improve how your organization uses data to drive impact. To begin your journey, take our assessment(Link opens in a new window).

The Community tab in the Tableau Blueprint Planner is focused on communications, engagement activities, and support plans to connect people and nurture the use of analytics. Your organization’s Tableau user community is just like Tableau’s Community, only on a smaller scale. It’s comprised of all the Tableau users in your company. The community leader will coordinate efforts to collect enablement resources and connect users within your company and generate enthusiasm among a group of people founded on the common cause of putting data at the center of every conversation.

Not all items listed on the Community tab are required for launch, and many will evolve over time. The following areas should be assigned to an owner with a due date:
