Use one of the following workarounds.
  • Use an image object to display a watermark under the data. For more information, see Adding Dashboard Objects in Tableau Help.
  • Add an image layout container to the dashboard. For more information, see Layout Containers in Tableau Help.
  • If the watermark is only text, add the text to the title. For more information, see Titles in Tableau Help.
  • Add the watermark as a background image. For more information, see Adding Background Images in Tableau Help.


The ability to add watermarks is not currently built into the product.
