Tableau has a lot of potentials, but it doesn't always live up to its price tag for customer service. There are times when you can't get in touch with the support team, but when you do, they're beneficial. We need more proactive exit strategies, not just sales pitches. In my opinion, they're a good partner, but more collaboration is required.

The support staff is tough to reach at times, but helpful when you have a chance to schedule a call/meeting with them. I wish they were more proactive in terms of reach out and did not try to always sell something. I see them as a valid partner, but would like to have more collaboration.

Tableau's support team responds quicker with work/client licensing rather than to an individual. There are situations where we cannot share TWBX files and it takes a while for the support team to understand the issue and help/resolve it. I personally didn't have a resolution to my problem after contacting the support team in the past.

Tableau support team took their own time to reach out with their solution. However, Tableau online community forums where many visitors and user are ready to lend a hand to others and share their experiences provide support and help in any issues encounter during the development phase.

There is a vast array of internet resources to provide support for Tableau without having to reach out to the vendor. There are hundreds of online videos providing walk-throughs of challenges, thousands of pages providing insight and answers to questions, and even sample dashboards making it easier to resolve technical issues.

Tableau has a large customer support service, and all user queries are addressed very efficiently in very little time. Additionally, there are several Tableau-related blogs that provide solutions to almost all frequently generated issues. There are also several YouTube channels that teach Tableau from scratch, thereby providing a good foundation for new learners.

We have required almost zero technical support over the entire duration of using Tableau. On the very few occasions that we did have to engage support teams, the responses were very fast, professional, and helpful. Tableau uses a Salesforce Customer Community to serve as the primary support / case management platform, empowering users with an ability to quickly submit new support tickets and check the status of existing tickets.

Direct support from Tableau is on par with any major vendor, but it is not top shelf. There is also very good community support. I would say I've generally relied more on the community postings than using Tableau support directly. I generally get answers from the community faster than I do from support.

The community forum of Tableau is great where people can collaborate and answer your issues. But sometimes you have to wait for quite a lot before you get any response from their support teams. This is where I believe Tableau lacks as after paying such a high price you expect quality support which I believe is not up to the mark.

My experience with the Tableau team has all been positive. They are very quick to help and the Tableau community is a vast resource full of common problems where you can find most answers. Those that you can not find, the Tableau team were very quick and helpful to solve any issues we had.

Great sales support when purchasing, but could have used some post-purchase support when it came to setup, integrations, and figuring out what might be out of the box that we could leverage instead of trying to do everything for the first time.

Tableau Desktop's support team has been a huge asset to us as we adopted this tool. We have a lot of customizations and required a lot of support from Tableau during our initial deployment and they were fantastic. We actually got up and running about a month ahead of schedule. Follow-up support has been great as well as we have run into a few quirks and bugs here and there, but nothing that Tableau support hasn't been able to help us out with.

Tableau Desktop team is quite friendly and easy to work with. They will respond fast and they also make everything to come to a resolvable solution. Since the software is well documented, i have found that you can get information easily with little effort. With several blogs and sites, you can get a decent amount of help.

Tableau support has been extremely responsive and willing to help with all of our requests. They have assisted with creating advanced analysis and many different types of custom icons, data formatting, formulas, and actions embedded into graphs. Tableau offers a weekly presentation of features and assists with internal company projects.
