Tableau Reader is a free application that allows you to open and view interactive visualizations created in Tableau Desktop . The user has access to preview reports, filtering, sorting and printing.
The limitations of Tableau Reader (compared to the paid Tableau tools) include:
- No automatic data refresh. After updating, the report must be made available again, e.g. by e-mail.
- Unable to drill down to the source data level.
- Unable to define Users' rights. For the recipient's full authority, it does not matter. However, if the recipients have different authorizations, a separate report must be prepared for each user, with the limitation of the scope of data in the report itself.
- Unable to read on mobile devices.
