Dashboard zone names
You now have the ability to assign a name to any item on a dashboard, helping to better organise multiple zones when looking at the layout tree.
Nested sorting improvements
You can now perform nested sorting on multiple dimensions. Also included are updates to the sort dialog and toolbar sort button.
URL action improvements
URL actions can now target specific web zones in a dashboard, allowing authors the control to more seamlessly link to information that is hosted outside of their data source. Better integrate and add more meaningful content to your dashboard, and design more sophisticated app-like dashboards.
Automatic dashboard phone layouts
Authoring mobile dashboard layouts just got easier. Tableau will now automatically add phone layouts to new dashboards. Edit to customise this layout yourself, or enable “automatic layout mode”, which continuously syncs the phone layout with changes you make in the Default layout.
