Tableau Desktop & Server

Tableau Desktop

Tableau Desktop is a report development tool for creating reports and visualizing data. These visualizations can be organized in a dashboard for individual use or shared with other users via Tableau Server.

Tableau Prep

Tableau Prep is a drag and drop interface which reduces the struggle of common data preparation tasks such as cleaning, joins, pivots, unions and splitting columns without altering your source data or using any coding. Integrated directly with the Desktop version of Tableau, no valuable time is wasted from the data cleansing stage to analysis.

Tableau Server

Tableau Server is a secure portal that allows dashboards created in Tableau Desktop to be securely shared with other university staff from any browser or mobile device. This service is provided by ITS and supported by the Data Hub. Current version of University of Toronto Tableau Server is 2018.3.

University of Toronto Tableau Server Sites
