The Narratives for Tableau extension is available for Tableau’s [Extensions API Developer Preview Program / 2018.2 Beta]. You will need to download this version of Tableau desktop to access our extension prior to release later in 2018.
The Narratives for Tableau extension is downloaded as a .trex file. You will need to download this file.
To use your extensions, open or create a dashboard in Tableau, and find the “Extensions” icon in the left-hand side of your screen. Drag this object onto your dashboard into the desired location. This action will open a dialog box prompting you to choose your extension.
Click “Choose,” and navigate to the “Extensions” folder where you moved your .trex file. Select the .trex file and click “Open.” This will launch the Narrative extension in your dashboard.
