Embedded View In SharePoint Does Not Render Tab Labels With Internet Explorer

Accessing a published Dashboard, via Internet Explorer, within SharePoint does not render labels on worksheet tabs.


  • Tableau Server 
  • Microsoft SharePoint
  • Internet Explorer


Option 1

Work with your IT team to disable the Compatibility Mode for Internet Explorer verison 11.

Option 2

Work with your IT team to change page headers to restrict legacy document modes which are not supported by Tableau Server. For more information about this, see Specifying legacy document modes.


Starting with Tableau Server 10, compatibility with versions of Internet Explorer prior to 11 is no longer supported. Compatibility Mode settings within Internet Explorer 11, and those in the HTML code for the webpage or website, ensure compatibility with older versions of Internet Explorer and may cause the error to occur by forcing the webpage to load in an unsupported Compatibility Mode.

Additional Information

The Compatibility Mode settings for the page may also be found in the HTML meta tags, e.g. '<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=EmulateIE7” />'.
