Gaining Access to Purdue Tableau Server
Tableau Server is currently open to all faculty and staff at Purdue. Within Tableau Server, there are several projects which are controlled by various departments around campus. If you are missing access to your department's project, you can start by checking to see if your area has a Tableau Project Leader.
Tableau Server is available for Purdue users to store data sources and Tableau Workbooks. Websites can be linked to the content and dashboards stored in the server for shared use internally and/or externally.
Please contact email@example.com with any questions you may have on connecting data sources or servers to the Purdue Tableau Server.
