  2. (Tableau Server only) In the Web Authoring section, select Let users edit workbooks in their browser.
  3. In the Availability of Explain Data section, select from these options:

    • Enable Explain Data lets Creators and Explorers with the appropriate permissions run Explain Data in editing mode. Lets all users with appropriate permissions run Explain Data when it is enabled for viewing mode.

    • Disable Explain Data prevents all users from running Explain Data or accessing Explain Data settings in workbooks.
