Connect to data
Adding data to your site is the first step to analysing data, and analysing your data is why you're here! Connect to data directly from Tableau Online by uploading files, connecting to web-based data sources, or using a Dashboard Starter. You can also publish data to your site using Tableau Desktop.
Sometimes finding the right data to help evaluate a BI solution is hard. Downloading these CSV files and uploading them to your trial site can help. Don't worry. We’ve chosen some fun ones for you to explore.
Once downloaded, go to your site, click Create workbook and upload one of the files. You'll be able to start asking data questions right away.

Access your analytics anywhere
On the go? Take your data with you. Use the Tableau mobile app to access your data wherever you are, whenever you need it, on whatever device you have with you.
Projects help you hold and organise related resources. Often, site admins create high-level projects tied to your company’s organisational structure (i.e. by department). Teams in each department can then create sub-projects with designated project leaders.
Ask yourself, what capabilities do your people need to be successful? Tailor each user’s role based on how they will interact with your site.
Group users together
Often, similarly situated people in your organisation will need access to the same kinds of content. For example, the Finance team usually need to access the same data sources and workbooks. Arrange users into groups according to what they’ll need to do.
The power of the Tableau Community
One of the best features of Tableau Online is the Tableau Community. We have the most passionate, engaged and helpful community out there. Network, ask questions, share ideas and hear what's coming next.
