How to navigate

Use the menu on the left to explore different elements. Tap "Discover" to see can't-miss moments we've highlighted for you each day. Now you can book appointments with Tableau Doctor and schedule Braindates with your peers directly through the app. To return to the menu from any screen, tap the three bars in the top left corner. Use search function throughout the app and filters in "Schedule Builder" to narrow sessions by type, topic, level of expertise, department, and industry.

Build your schedule

Pre-register for Hands-on training sessions by tapping the star on the left (registration is required to secure a seat). Starring any session adds them to “My Schedule” view, but only HOT reserves a seat and has a limit on sessions per timeslot. Keynotes, breakouts, meetups, and all others are first come, first served unless otherwise stated, and do not have a limit per timeslot. Pro-tip: Session rooms are still in flux pending interest in sessions. Pay attention to the room location to plan your transition time.

Register for hands-on trainings

Hands-on training (HOT) sessions last two hours and are led by expert instructors. Because these sessions tend to fill up quickly, you can pre-register through the app or web schedule builder to reserve your seat. Only one HOT can be booked per timeslot. If the session is full you may be able to join a waitlist. If you haven't been cleared up to an hour before, you may join the standby line. Those with reserved seats must arrive at least five minutes before the session to claim their seat before it is forfeited to standby attendees.

Beyond the sessions

There’s a lot going on that isn’t technically a scheduled session. Activities include different styles of learning like Tableau Doctor, ways to dive deeper into new features with Tableau Labs, and more data adventures that are open throughout the busy week. Learn more about each, including the hours and where you can find them in the venue. Tap the star next to each of these to add them to the “My Interests” view. Don't stop there, attendees, speakers, and sponsors can also be added to this section to remind you later.
