Review the Known Issues for Tableau Mobile(Link opens in a new window) to learn about any open issues and recently fixed issues.
Deploy the app without managing mobile devices
If your organisation doesn't manage mobile devices or applications, ask your users to download Tableau Mobile directly to their mobile devices from the App Store or Google Play:
- Tableau Mobile for iOS(Link opens in a new window) on the App Store
- Tableau Mobile for Android(Link opens in a new window) on Google Play
When updates to Tableau Mobile become available, they're handled by each device’s update service. If you'd like users to always have the latest version, instruct them to enable automatic app updates in their system settings.
Deploy the app with mobile device management
Mobile device management (MDM) systems control entire mobile devices, letting administrators remotely monitor, update and remove any applications and data.
To make Tableau Mobile available to users from your internal app catalogue, add it to your MDM system using the guidance below:
- VMware Workspace ONE help(Link opens in a new window)
- MobileIron help(Link opens in a new window)
- Citrix Endpoint Management help(Link opens in a new window) (formerly XenMobile)
- Microsoft Intune help(Link opens in a new window)
Note: Though other MDM providers might work with Tableau Mobile, they are not tested or supported by Tableau.
Deploy the app with mobile application management
With mobile application management (MAM) systems, administrators control and update specific applications, leaving personal applications and data untouched.
To make Tableau Mobile available to users from your internal app catalog, follow the guidance from your MAM system and add the provider-specific apps listed below.
If you use Tableau Mobile for BlackBerry or Tableau Mobile for Workspace ONE, encourage your users to download the latest version of the app. The legacy version (versions 19.225.1731 and earlier) is no longer supported.
Disclaimer: Detailed MDM and MAM guidance is beyond the scope of Tableau documentation and support. For further assistance, contact your MDM or MAM vendor.
