For Explorers that want to explore further on their own, they have 2 options – Web Edit and Download. Users can alter the current dashboards or create their own versions of analysis while on Tableau server’s web interface, which looks similar to Tableau Desktop. Although the web editing functionality is not as flexible as Tableau Desktop, it allows users the option to do ad hoc analysis on top of the content that has been published, and save it for other users to access as well. In each of the recent updates, more functionalities for web editing are released.
Tableau Server allows downloading of the views or dashboards in multiple formats – Image, Data, Crosstab, PDF, PowerPoint, Tableau Workbook. This allows for the published dashboard to be used for presentations and sharing, or extracting the data for further transformation and analysis.
