Where Tableau's built-in subscription and alerting functionality ends, VizAlerts takes off. VizAlerts is an open-source tool originally built at Tableau for internal use that enhances Tableau's subscriptions with rich emails with images, PDFs, and data from Tableau views that can be delivered to any recipient based on any trigger criteria you can imagine. The creators of VizAlerts will demonstrate the configuration and operation of VizAlerts with 3 use cases: extract and workbook usage monitoring on Tableau's own internal Tableau Server deployment, daily reporting and merged emails at Southern Maine Health Care, and threshold-based alerts and SMS messaging for the PATH Foundation and Zambia Ministry of Health in partnership with the Tableau Foundation to help eliminate malaria. This Tableau Zen Master session is great for Tableau admins as well as Tableau evangelists who want to deliver more views to more people.
