Overall Satisfaction with Tableau Server

Our team is using Tableau server to support analytics for the project teams at client sites.

Pros

  • Standardized reporting across teams/projects
  • Easily access summary level reporting with the ability to get to the account level detail within a few clicks
  • Easy to share reports with the many export features

Cons

  • The formatting is always difficult and never translates exactly when publishing from desktop to server
  • Customization using the command line is more difficult than it should be
  • It'd be nice to be able to copy group permissions between sites
  • It's great having standardized reports that are updated for project teams on a consistent schedule
  • Automated updates are great compared to manually updated Excel reports, which opens the door for human error
  • Adoption has been difficult, as many folks are still more comfortable in Excel vs. using SQL and Tableau
Tableau server is great to support our project teams that are doing similar things at different client sites across the country.

Many of our clients do not have Tableau or Tableau Server, so leaving behind reporting after project conclusion is often difficult and requires us to build something out in Excel for them.
