Difficult to build/manage a schedule, especially when there are multiple sessions of interest at the same time slot or slightly overlapping. Would be great to have something that resembles an Outlook calendar.
Pre conference likes for sessions wasn’t helpful in creating your own schedule. When creating your schedule there wasn’t a way to first select all the topics, presenters, companies that you wanted to see, then prioritize and make scheduling decisions on that smaller list. So all that had to be done on paper, figured out, then renters into the app only to find that the chosen sessions were sold out since the pre sizing using likes didn’t work as hoped. During the conference the app doesn’t help you connect later with those you meet. It would be great to have the ability to star folks that you meet and provide some location aware context as to where that meet happened. Adding notes to the connect could be entered later, or even a message sent. It would also be interesting to have a proximity alert for those you have starred (providing a user to selectively exclude themselves from discovery or blocking some). And, based on the amount of walking and travel a person experiences at the conference, perhaps just aggregating distance travelled by day when the app is on into a collective viz of attendee travel experience?
User interface is not intuitive. You have to keep clicking different things until you finally find what you need. The sessions filter doesn't work, so you have to look through all the events in order to find the one you need. And then they just don't get added to your calendar. Which defeats the purpose of having one.
I was also having issue logging in as reported earlier. I removed the app from my phone, rebooted my phone, reinstalled the app, then signed in during the welcome sequence. That did the trick for me, but perhaps one of the steps is overkill.
Great to have a way to flag favorites. Like the rich set if features. However, I had several problems loading the attendee list and had successive (uncancellable) popup dialogs in a row as data tried to load over and over and failed. Even rebooting the app did not prevent this data problem, which I found a bit ironic for a data conference. :)
I’m at #TC18 and this app is barely working. Which pretty much trashes the entire conference. I’ve got two different phones and it isn’t working on either one. Says I’m off-line when I’m online, or blows up every time I log into it. They put way too much into this conference to wrap it all around this app and have it not work.
This app app works for 2/12 team members going to the conference. The most basic functionality of seeing TC19 listed doesn’t work for most (no upcoming events) and for those who see TC19, login doesn’t connect and all session data is blank. Awful overall.
Hopefully I'm just a bleeding edge adopter, but the app won't retain my conference credentials. I sign in and I briefly see my name on the account profile page but it doesn't stick. Hoping they'll fix soon. Looking forward to TC17!
There were a lot of bugs, to the point that Data14 would lock up often, or not download info it was supposed to (attendee list). The maps took so long to download the first time, that I thought they were broken. The User Profile page seemed to have unimplemented functionality, like ability to send other attendees emails, update our pictures, view our inbox. Inconsistent spellings of favorite/favourite, with the same page. Major events were not listed in the schedule, like the Welcome Reception and Data Night Out party. Those were buried in menu Happenings. Would have been nicer to have a complete schedule and be able to filter on event types. Really wish there was a conference schedule matrix!!! We had to view 270 breakout session descriptions in one really, really long list. :(
It is nice that it provides you the schedule, let's you select your favorite events, and let's you connect to the people you meet. It would be nice if it could show you your schedule of events you select as well as any schedule conflicts.
I just downloaded and logged in to this app no problem. You need to use the credentials provided in attendee email from Tableau Software, they provide a custom confirmation number. This app works great, very easy to navigate, keep notes, select sessions of interest. If you’re attending the Tableau Conference 2014 (in Seattle September 8 - 11) get this app.
This is my first time using this app. So far I'm pretty impressed. Nice to see they have an app to help guide through the conference. Glad to see they have added pre-registration from the stories I heard last year. Think it's a big benefit.
Very good app, definite improvement over last year. Would like better filters for finding attendees (company & interest searches) and the ability to literally locate people amongst 10,000 attendees (15,000 next year)
Really want a filter able attendee list! Would also like to see who will be attending certain session. Would also enjoy having a way to swap virtual biz cards easily.. Overall-- looking forward to navigating TC 15 with this
I cannot remove registration for courses and claims that I do not have the right attendee type to register. Despite the fact that I am already registered! Please fix as I am stuck in my current classes now!
Ap requires cryptic initial password followed by a new assigned cryptic password. No way to change to a useful, friendly ID. Ap itself does not allow for good planning and organization of sessions. A huge disappointment coming from a visualization company
The official app for Tableau Conferences is your go-to guide for conference attendees. In the app, you'll be able to: - View the full conference schedule - Register for sessions and favorite speakers, activities or topics - Network with fellow data people - Navigate the conference venue with maps
