Tableau Server is an online platform to host and hold all the tableau workbooks, data sources, and related tableau data. Users should have a license in order to use Tableau server and its features. creating security, folder setup, automation, data refresh are some of the best features Tableau servers provides. Scheduling the data extracts and dashboard refresh is the main scope of our project
- extract refresh schedule
- subscriptions to workbooks & Dashboards
- download data in crosstab
- download workbook as image, pdf, twbx
- permissions should flow from primary folder if changes are made later.
- download pdf content doesn't have scroll bar it just takes snapshot leaving some data
- data cache issues should be resolved
- formatting options on server are limited
- tableau server has customizable options for users to save their own view which is an advantage
- daily email subscriptions is an advantage
Tableau Server is extremely well suited for a company with a few dedicated analysts creating dashboards and reports for a few stakeholders. It is also great at handling a large number of report viewers, but it is more expensive because you have to pay for each user. We have just created a single visualization containing multiple what-if scenarios that our users can easily update on the fly using Tableau’s new set of controls.

Tableau Server is a Business Intelligence application that allows its users to organize, edit, share, and collaborate on Tableau dashboards. While Tableau Online is a paid add-on that keeps your data fully hosted on Tableau, Tableau Server allows you to store data on your chosen cloud storage or your own on-premises server
Tableau Server on Linux supports a subset of the data sources on Tableau Server on Windows. You need to confirm that the data sources used by your organization are supported on Linux, and install any drivers required. Tableau Server will start a session for the user and the user will see the visualization. Of course, the user does not see the HTTP requests going on behind the scenes, but simply loads a page in your application and sees embedded Tableau content without having to signin.
Ask data is one of the new and good feature that is available in tableau server. Tableau Server is well suited for a data warehouse build and handling big data. Tableau data aggregation, transformation, clustering capability is powerful and easy to implement. The choice of charts and visualization tools is outstanding.
