For users who wish to develop Tableau visualizations for the purpose of sharing the content on a website, you will need Tableau Public.
Tableau Public is a completely FREE version of Tableau Desktop.
It allows users to develop and publish interactive data visualizations to the Tableau Public server and optionally embed on a website. All work is saved and published to the Tableau Public web servers—nothing is saved locally on your computer.
- Support for data sets up to 10 million rows
- 10 GB storage limit
- Ability to limit downloading of files and data from Tableau Public
TIP: See Tableau Public in use at Brown on the Office of Institutional Research website.
How to Share Visualizations on a Website
- Create your visualizations and save your workbook to Tableau Public.
- Optional (recommended): Prevent Workbook and Data Downloads on Tableau Public
- Obtain the Tableau Public content embed code.
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org (your email will automatically create a support request) with the following:*
- embed code
- the full URL of the web page where you want to embed the Tableau Public content
Data You Publish to Tableau Public is Your Responsibility
Just as you are responsible for the information you publish on a website, you are responsible for the content you publish to Tableau Public.
It is your responsibility to safeguard university data.
In light of this important responsibility, we want to remind you of Brown's computing policies—especially the following you agreed to when you were hired.
Unsure if your data can be made public?
