Ask Data improvements
We’re making it easier for you to enable more curated experiences for Ask Data.

We’ve also integrated categorised suggestions to help users understand the various types of analytical questions that can be asked. And finally, calculating year-over-year metrics is as simple as typing “YoY profit growth”, helping you quickly answer critical questions of your data.

We've made extensions more flexible. Now developers can now create sandboxed extensions, which disables network calls - streamlining the development process from a security standpoint.
Personal Access Tokens
Personal Access Tokens (PAT) provide individual users the ability to create long-lived authentication tokens for running automation and tools against Tableau REST APIs without requiring hard-coded account credentials in plain text or an interactive login experience.
When sharing a dashboard or view that been modified (through selections, filters, zooming, panning), sharing will automatically generate a link that includes these interactions. Simply enter in the names of any named users on the site to send them an email with the dashboard or view image and an optional note.
Cloud file connectors for Tableau Prep
Start prepping your cloud-based files from Box, Dropbox, OneDrive or Google Drive in Tableau Prep Builder, then publish them to Tableau Prep Conductor.

Biometric sign-in for Tableau Mobile
Sign in once and then rely on touch ID and biometrics for future authentication. Use with long-lived tokens for an additional layer of security.
