At Tableau, we provide a visual analytics experience that is fast, easy, and beautiful for any user at any level of experience. Tableau is at its best when part of an iterative cycle of exploration and discovery. Our users continuously uncover new insights and come up with deeper questions of their data. This provides an incredibly powerful and flexible experience, but can also result in workbooks that perform poorly when they are shared with a broad audience.
This whitepaper, Designing Efficient Production Workbooks, helps Tableau users navigate their way through common performance problems that they may encounter on the journey from personal discovery to publishing and maintaining dashboards for thousands of others. Whether you’re just starting out with Tableau or have been with us for years, you’ll find the guidance and best practices you need to deliver performant workbooks.
