Update: Tableau 10 is here! Download now to try out the feature outlined below.

Spring is in the air. You know what else is in the air? The sweet smell of the Tableau 10 beta.

We are excited to announce the Tableau 10 beta is now available. Tableau 10 includes a brand new look and feel, and a host of new features to help you prep, analyze, and share your insights even faster.

Here is a preview of the 10 most exciting features coming in Tableau 10.

1. Cross-database joins

Disparate data can now be friends. Join data from different data sources like Excel and Oracle, and create an integrated data source in Tableau. You can also create a Tableau extract of this data source and publish it.

2. Tableau Mobile for Android

You asked and we delivered. Tableau Mobile is coming to Android phones.

3. Device Designer

We’re making it easier for you to share dashboards on any screen. With Tableau 10, you can design, customize, and publish a single dashboard with optimized views for tablets and phones. We’re also adding workbook-formatting control so you can change font styles across your entire workbook with a single click.

4. Global cross-database filters

With cross-database filters, a single filter can apply to more than one data source in a workbook. These filters make it easier to analyze data across multiple data sources.

5. Clustering

With Tableau 10’s powerful Analytics pane, you can do drag-and-drop cluster analysis. Use clustering to visually spot patterns and groups in your data.

6. Custom regions

Here’s a feature to make sales-planning a breeze. You can make maps of sales territories or regionally explore your data.

7. Web authoring

Stuck with just a browser? Don’t worry. You can do more on the web. Add published data sources and author dashboards right in the browser.

8. Data-source analytics

See what’s hot in your organization with data-source analytics. Monitor data-source usage stats at a glance, and favorite the data sources you use most.

9. Connectors

We're adding and improving our data connectors so you can start analyzing your data faster. Enjoy connections to Google Sheets, Quickbooks Online, Kognitio, memSQL, OData, and WDC 2.0 for web data.

10. Mobile device management

Deploy Tableau Mobile at scale. We’re supporting AirWatch and MobileIron for enterprise Tableau Mobile deployments.

Want to stay up to date on the latest from Tableau?

To help you plan for upcoming releases, we’ve launched a new Coming Soon website with more details on all planned Tableau 10 features. We’ll update the site throughout the beta period with more information, screenshots, and videos.

When will Tableau 10 be released?

We have a timeline for getting Tableau 10 out the door, but we’d first like to get solid usage in beta and fix any bugs. We want your feedback as early as possible to catch any issues and ensure the new features are great. The features included in beta and in the final version of Tableau 10 may change over time as we get feedback from beta users.

Want to join the beta?

Check out our beta program to learn more and sign up. Not all functionality described above are available today. Some features will be added in the coming weeks. The beta program is available for existing Tableau customers. Customers with an active maintenance license can upgrade for free when Tableau 10 is released.

Wooohoo... Finally getting features which are most awaited once

ohh grt its interesting


custom regions! fuck yeah

hahaha! Whoop-dee-do..

Awesome news! Very excited for the Custom Regions feature.

Wooow! That is cool!

But what is about Dynamic Parameters and Auto Save features?

We might get these features in Tableau 12

I´m so exciting ! i can´t wait !!!

It looks a lot like Qlik Sense to me!

Stuff we have been waiting for!!

My favorite for Tableau 10 is "Cross data connection" i have been looking for this for a long time..

I installed the version 10 and I migrated my data from version 9.2 and so far there has been no error.

Please let me know where to download 10 beta version

If Custom Regions does what I hope it will do, it'll be a game changer for us.

Will we be able to connect to Power BI models? These are overtaking so will be nice to still have a reason to use the new Tableau.

Good news ! Impatient to test the 10. Hoping some nice upgrades for designing and building of dashboard more easily.

How about more new visualizations, may be a
Donut Chart,
Speedometer Chart,
Hierarchical Wagon Wheel Chart,
Hierarchical Tree Map (Zoomable)


Indeed that should be a great addition.. Not sure why this aren't in list yet... :(


Very excited for the Custom Regions feature.

Dear Team,

With this requesting to work on
1) Default option in parameter
2) Parameter dynamic update based on field
3) Push button on dashboard object

Is the option of connecting KML files available as well?

All this is good but may I kindly request the following features, in no particular order...
1. Dynamic updating of parameters.
2. Updating of parameters dynamically.
3. Parameters can update themselves dynamically
4. Parameters update when data refreshes. Dynamically.
5. Automatic updating of parameters.

Great response, Dave Weaver!

LOL Yes waiting for all of these features since Tableau 7... Please implement at least one of these in the next version!

Hi filters across multiple data sets will be more fun. I need one small suggestion as follows....

Is it possible to provide some buttons (usually call push buttons) where we can use them as home, back or any specific filter button. (for 'home' button feature currently we are using a sheet by adding home image and applying action on it, however this sheet WONT work for 1st click).

When will viz-in-tooltip appear?

Great!! Can't wait to try all the new features. Cross data connection is the deal maker for me. Yeah!!!!

Perhaps I've missed it but it's not clear to me where or when I can download v 10 beta. So, where and when?? Really want to test this!

Very exited to see Cross data base join which is very helpful.

Wow on android option, cross data, universal filter for multiple data source are the game changers

Hi, very nice! Could you say in concrete when the V10.0 will be released (May/June) ?

Very useful and exciting features cant wait for official V10 release

Great new features!

Also need:

(a) dates to be automatically updated to the 'today' or 'most recent' date in the corresponding field.
(b) Sorting by any column

baji - thanks for the comments. We do both a and b today. Please reach out to tech support or your sales team for assistance.

I like the feature for device specific dashboards.

This is great, looking forward to use mobile feature.
