Tableau Mobile Overview

Tableau Mobile makes it fast to find the content you're looking for and easy to discover data insights on the go. With Tableau Mobile, you can sign in to Tableau Server or Tableau Online and interact with the content on your site.

App requirements

  • A mobile device with iOS 11 or later, or Android 5 or later

  • An account on either Tableau Online or Tableau Server 10.4 and later

Change app settings or switch sites

  1. Navigate to the Favorites screen, and select the dots (...) in the upper-right corner.
  2. Select Settings to change app defaults, or select Sign Out to access a different Tableau site.

Quickly find content

Easily access favorites

See multiple favorites at once, with newly added favorites right at the top.

Browse content with hierarchy-based navigation

Select Explore to browse your site's Tableau content. Start with the list of top-level projects, and then choose one to instantly access its sub-projects, workbooks, and views.

Tip: To see all projects, workbooks, and views, select the blue numbers on the right side of the screen.

When you open a workbook, you can choose from thumbnails for all of its views. If a workbook contains only a single view, that view immediately opens. (You can override this default in the app settings.)

When you're looking at an individual view within a workbook, select the views icon to quickly open another view.

Note: To make the best use of limited space on mobile screens, views appear in this menu even if Show Sheets as Tabs was selected when the workbook was published.

Search across all projects, workbooks, and views

Search works across your entire site and shows results sorted by projects, workbooks, and views, just like the project-navigation interface.

See interactive previews, online or offline

If you use Tableau Online or Tableau Server 2018.2 or later, Tableau Mobile stores all of your favorites as fast-loading interactive previews. Interactive previews are available even when your device is offline, letting you explore data wherever you go.

Interactive previews let you scroll, pan, and zoom a viz, see data tooltips, and highlight marks in multiple dashboard objects. However, the following features aren't available: filtering, combined tooltips for multiple selected marks, Viz-in-Tooltip, and advanced analytics like trend and reference lines.

To get full functionality when you're connected to the network, simply select Go Live.

If you prefer to always load the Live view, you can turn off previews in the app settings. (Tableau Server administrators sometimes disable previews for entire organizations.)

Note: Static image previews appear if you use Tableau Server 2018.1 or earlier. Though these aren't interactive, they still provide helpful access to data views when you’re offline. For particularly complex views, you might see static previews on newer servers too; if this happens a lot, ask your Tableau administrator to adjust client-side rendering settings.

Links to other Tableau views now open directly in Tableau Mobile rather than a browser, so you don't need to switch back to the app. You'll particularly appreciate this if your organization uses groups of dashboard links that help you navigate to other Tableau content.

Enjoy identical features on both Android and iOS

Regardless of whether you use Android or iOS, you browse, search, and use other Tableau Mobile features in exactly the same way.
