Web Authoring in Tableau Public (Beta)

Updated: May 22, 2021

web authoring in tableau public

A few years ago, Tableau Public added some new features which included the ability to edit vizzes on your Tableau Public profile. Now an additional feature is here, (web authoring beta) which allows all Tableau Public users create vizzes directly in their browser.

So, now you can skip the installation process and create vizzes directly in your browser with web-authoring.

Try the new feature.

To try this new feature,

  • Sign-in to Tableau Public.

  • Navigate to your profile page by clicking on My Profile.

To start creating vizzes click on the new button “Create a Viz (Beta)”

Note: After clicking this button, Tableau opens a new workbook where you can connect to data either using the upload option or by dragging files to the canvas.

Once the data is uploaded, you can now create vizzes in the same interface you have used to.
