View Your Work
Once your work is uploaded to our Tableau Server, viewing it in the Data Arena is a matter of simply navigating to its URL in a web browser. The default page that Tableau provides to see your work contains a lot of external toolbars and details, but we can create a less distracting view by generating an embed URL. This is usually used for embedding Tableau projects into external websites. Follow these steps to get started:
- On Solo, find you project at https://ts2.da.uts.edu.au in any web browser.
- Select the ••• three dots icon and choose "share".
- Down the bottom of the pop-up modal, find the "Share using a link" section and click the Copy Link button
If you navigate directly to this URL, you'll see a much cleaner page with only your dashboard or sheet and no other user interface elements.
The last step is to use our
tableau_view command to launch a web browser "full screen" in the Data Arena to view your work. Simply run this command with the URL you copied earlier surrounded by
' inverted commas, e.g:
embed parameter inside the URL. By default this might be set to
embed=n, but changing this to
embed=y will remove all unnecessary toolbars. Of course, experiment with both and see what works best for your project. Find out more about embed URLs here and their parameters here. You might find more that could be useful for your project.
Your work should now be visible in the Data Arena!
