When embedding a view that utilizes a device layout and the default dashboard size is similar in Width and Height, once embedded, the view may default to the mobile view, rather than the default layout. 


  • Tableau Desktop 
  • Tableau Public Server 
  • Tableau Server 


To workaround this behavior, please consider the following workarounds. 

Option 1: 

Set Default dashboard sizing to "automatic" 

Option 2: 

Set Default Dashboard sizing to "Range" ensuring that the dimensions are greater than 500 pixels. If the smallest dimension is <=500px, we assume it's a phone.

Option 3:

Consider writing your own custom embed code. See Embed Views into Webpages 


The behavior is a known issue that our Development team is aware of and actively working to resolve in a future release of the product.
