Review the Known Issues for Tableau Mobile to learn about any open issues and recently fixed issues.
Deploy the app without managing mobile devices
If your organization 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:
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 catalog, add it to your MDM system using the guidance below:
- Workspace ONE help
- MobileIron help
- Citrix Endpoint Management help (formerly XenMobile)
- Microsoft Intune help for iOS apps and Android apps
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 (iOS only)
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, add it to your MAM system using the guidance below.
Note that the Tableau Mobile for BlackBerry app has been updated to the new version of Tableau Mobile. If you are using the legacy app (version 19.225.1731 and earlier), download the latest version of the app.
Tableau Mobile for Workspace ONE uses the legacy app, which does not support editing, sharing, or downloading. It does, however, support older devices running iOS 10 or later.
Disclaimer: Detailed MDM and MAM guidance is beyond the scope of Tableau documentation and support. For further assistance, contact your MDM or MAM vendor.
