A Tableau Guru is typically a specialist inside your company that has worked with Tableau closely in the past. A good first place to look for your Tableau Guru is with your Tableau Server Admin. Other than being a resource on Tableau, he or she can point you towards the Guru's who publish and create content for your Server. Knowing who your Tableau experts are, is important to ensuring the creation of content is as optimal as possible.

When you have questions that need answering before continuing to build out workbooks, the Guru should be there to assist. If you company doesn't have a Tableau expert, consider becoming one yourself.
