How to Map the Shared Drive

Recommendation: map as drive F, if available:

  1. See Queen's Tutorials for Accessing Shared Directories for tutorial to map a directory.
  2. Copy and paste the file path as follows, depending on your computer configuration:
  • PC on Queen's Active Directory - ASC Departments:  \\\asc\Shared\ASCDepts, or other Queen's units:  \\\edu\shared\Student Services\Tableau
  • PC not on AD: \\\asc\Shared\ASCDepts or
    \\\edu\shared\Student Services\Tableau
  • Mac: // or
    // Services/Tableau/ (may need to have prefix smb:, with none, 1, 2 or 3 /s). NB need Mac OS X 10.10 for Tableau Reader 10.0.
  1. When prompted, select "use other credentials" and set your username to be ad\netid.
  2. If you're having trouble mapping the drive, you can call Queen's ITServices for help - 613 533 6666.
  3. if you want to access this folder from off Queen's campus, you need to use Queen's Virtual Private Network. See VPN Tutorials, and select the "ADV" option to map Active Directory drives. The first time you log on, you will need to map the drive as indicated above, and the drive will be available on subsequent VPN sessions (and not available when you're off VPN).

Special instructions for Windows 10 users

  1. To map a drive, select Explorer, and Map network Drive is in the tools at the top of the screen.
  2. If you are running Windows 10 on a relatively new device (such as a MS Tablet), the Tableau screen may be very compressed, due to the high screen resolution. Go to Settings, Display, Advanced Display settings, and adjust the resolution down. Below are some combinations that seem to show Tableau visualizations satisfactorily, all with text size 100%: 1280 x 960, 1400 x 1050, 1680 x 1050, 1920 x 1080.
