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).

Tableau Reader

To interact with the Tableau twbx files, you will need to download free Tableau Reader (version 10, latest version) to interact with detailed Tableau Visualizations.


Tableau .twbx files are in version 10.5. Current versions of Tableau reader can read prior versions. If you have a Tableau version earlier than the .twbx file, you will get an error message, and you need to download the latest version of Reader.


Tableau files written using previous versions are in folders (with version number) on the shared drives, but are not maintained with current data.

Tableau is Free for Students and Instructors!
