Subscriptions are an easy way to ensure that you regularly review critical information. When you subscribe to a dashboard, Tableau Server will send it to your email address at regular intervals, always with the most recent data. Get all the important information you need, right in your inbox. If you do want to interact with the dashboard, you can click into the email to go to Tableau Server.
Once you've clicked the “Subscribe” button for a dashboard, you can select how often you'd like to receive this dashboard by email. You can choose between daily and weekly subscriptions, and whether you'd like to see just a single sheet, or all the sheets in a workbook. Once you've subscribed, you'll get an image of this important information sent to your email at the frequency you've selected. The image will reflect the most recent data at the time the email was sent.
You’re in the Administrator view toggling the ability to allow subscriptions for a site.
Administrators may want to turn subscriptions off for an entire site if they are concerned about having sensitive information delivered in email or want to conserve resources on Tableau Server.
