set control new in Tableau 2020.2

Set control

The set control allows users to dynamically change the members of a set using a familiar, quick filter-like interface. End users can change set membership with both a single and multi-select dropdown, and the set control automatically refreshes its domain so that the data stays fresh.

With Tableau’s data model improvements we are able to work faster in our COVID-19 analysis. We have COVID-19 case data at a county level, testing data at a date level, and hospital data at an institution level, and we’re overlaying census population data to normalize everything per capita. This would have required multiple join combinations into several disparate data sources to analyze the data, but with the improvements to Tableau’s data model, we can easily relate tables in a single, flexible data source.
