What's Tableau Desktop?
Before we dive into the content below, let's do quick overview of what Tableau Desktop is. With Tableau Desktop, you can connect to a variety of data sources and start visualising data.See Tableau Desktop in action
Prep your data
If you're having trouble getting your data into Tableau Desktop, you may need to do some data prep before it's ready for analysis. Use Tableau Prep to combine, clean or shape your data, then output it to Tableau Desktop for analysis. The flexible, visual experience of Tableau Prep gives you a deeper understanding of your data. It makes common yet complex tasks like joins, unions, pivots and aggregations simple and visual. With your Creator licence, you get access to Tableau Prep.
Combine views into a dashboard
Combine multiple views into a single, interactive dashboard. Include filters, images and webpages in your dashboard for a more complete view of your data.

Share and collaborate
Don't keep your insights to yourself – share them with your colleagues. Tableau Server and Tableau Online allow you to publish visualisations and dashboards to the web so others can interact with your analytics and answer their own questions of the data.
