Question

How to submit a case to Tableau Support using the web form.

Answer

Note:  For assistance with Tableau issues, your first stop for case submission is the Tableau Customer Portal (customer.tableausoftware.com) where you can submit new cases and manage existing cases.   If you don’t have access to the Tableau Customer Portal, you’ll need to contact your portal administrator to get invited.  You can also submit new cases through the Tableau website at https://www.tableau.com/support/case, as described here, but the functionality is limited and won’t allow you to view or manage existing cases.

For issues with eLearning, please review the knowledge article Requesting Support for Tableau eLearning Center Related Issues.
For the Tableau for Teaching program, please review the Student FAQ prior to making a Support case.

  4. In the Describe your problem section, fill out the requested information: 
    Your problem statement: brief description of the issue you are experiencing 
    Category: What type of issue you are experiencing. 
    Severity for this Request: How severely you are impacted by the issue.  Description:  Add as much information as you can, such as how many users are impacted by the issue, how the issue is reproduced, and any troubleshooting steps you have already attempted.
    • Negligible: You are curious about something, or would like to let Tableau know about something, but you are not blocked from using the software in any way. 
    • Minor: Your ability to use the software is slightly impacted - for example, experiencing some slight performance issues, or have a calculation that isn't providing correct results. 
    • Major: Your ability to use the software is severely impacted - for example, you are unable to publish to Tableau Server, unable to connect to your primary data source, experiencing severe performance issues, or resolution of the issue is necessary to make a business deadline. 
    • Critical: You cannot use the software at all. For example, you are unable to install or activate the software, or the software will not launch.
  5. In the Describe your environment section, provide information about the environment where the issue is occurring, in which product, which version, which language, and which data sources and operating systems. This information helps Support choose which technician will be best suited to receive your case.
