Copy sheets from Tableau to another workbook

The functionality is well hidden under the name "Bookmark" - but Tableau actually has the ability to "Copy sheet to another workbook" as it is known from Excel. I use this when I want to reuse visualizations in other workbooks or when we are several people collaborating on one dashboard.

How to copy sheets to another Tableau workbook
  1. Go to Window -> Bookmark and "Create Bookmark" on the sheet you want to copy

  2. Save the file on your computer (it will look like an ordinary Tableau file with a red ribbon).

  3. Go to file and "Open" the bookmark in the workbook where you want to paste the Tableau file.

  • Make the bookmark function available for dashboards also in version 8 I am only able to bookmark sheets - vote for the idea here.
