Display your Tableau Dashboard with OptiSigns
You have created an awesome Tableau Dashboard, and now it's time for everyone in the office to see it. With OptiSigns, you can easily share your Tableau Dashboard on TVs, providing accessibility to more people.
This is a better option than hooking up a laptop or PC because OptiSigns allows you to:
Let's dive in to see how it all works! If you haven't used OptiSigns yet, it is a digital signage app that runs on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Raspberry Pi, allowing you to remotely manage contents on your digital screens. You can try it for free by following the setup guide for Windows or Mac.
Once your screen is paired with OptiSigns, you can create an instance of our Tableau Dashboard.
First, log in to app.optisigns.com, click Files/Assets, then click Apps and select the Tableau App.
To assign the newly created Tableau App to your screen, navigate to the "Screens" tab and click "Edit Screen."
Next, select "Type: Assets" and choose the newly created Tableau App (in this case, it's Tableau - Sales Dashboard). Then click "Save."
The Tableau Dashboard is now assigned to your screen. Unlike PowerBI, Tableau does not provide an Authentication API. Therefore, you will need to enter a username and password for each device and click "Save Password."
That's it! Your dashboard is now displayed on your TV.
You can easily change the displayed Dashboard on your devices remotely by utilizing the app.optisigns.com portal. Additionally, you can create a playlist to cycle through multiple Dashboards, or even add images or other content to mix in with your Dashboard content. OptiSigns provides a vast selection of apps that can help improve office communication, such as Outlook Calendar, Google Calendar, Notice Boards, Social Media Feeds, etc. Please visit our app page to learn more.
A note on using Tableau with Digital Signs:For optimal results, we recommend using Windows, Linux, Mac, or Raspberry Pi to display your Tableau Dashboard. Android boxes or FireSticks may be challenging to enter credentials, and Tableau Online frequently logs these devices out of authentication, causing inconvenience. We highly recommend using Raspberry Pi as a player since it is cost-efficient (approximately $70) and supports Tableau Online well.
