AllData Management Add-onPrep BuilderPrep ConductorDesktopPrepServerOnlinePublicMobile Dynamic parameters Parameter values will now update dynamically. Dynamic parameters Say goodbye to republishing workbooks with parameters every time the underlying data changes. Set your parameter once, and Tableau will automatically update the parameter’s list of values every time someone opens the workbook. Viz animations Quickly spot changes in your data. Viz animations Viz animations help you see and understand your changing data. It’s easy to track the logical steps behind data’s evolution and tell powerful data stories. Sorting, filtering, adding fields, and other actions will now smoothly animate your visualizations. Choose whether to turn viz animations on or off, and decide how you’d best like to apply animations to your new workbooks. Buffer calculations Better visualize and understand proximity between marks. Buffer by distance calculations Buffer calculations allow you to visualize the distance around point locations. Give Tableau three parameters—location, distance, and a unit of measure—and a buffer, or boundary is instantly created. Answering complex spatial questions becomes easier than ever before—visualize what properties are within 200 meters of a proposed transit site, or how many competitors’ stores are within 1 mile of their store, and more.
