You can now export vizzes from Tableau to PowerPoint with one click. Get deeper insights from your Google Ads data with a new, native connector. Other new features include automatic dashboard phone layouts, dashboard zone names and the ability to target specific web zones with URL actions. Learn more about our new features below.
Google Adwords connector
Gain deeper insights from your Google Adwords data. Connect and analyse your Google ad metrics in Tableau with our new connector.
Export to PowerPoint
Integrate your Tableau dashboards directly into presentations with a single click. Now you can easily export vizzes from Tableau Server or Tableau Online to PowerPoint as high-resolution images, complete with a link back to the workbook.
Azure SQL Data Warehouse connector
Connect directly to your data stored in Azure SQL Data Warehouse with our new connector.
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.
OAuth enabled for Snowflake Connector
We’ve significantly improved the Snowflake connection experience. The Snowflake Connector is now available across our entire platform and we have added native OAuth integration for both security and convenience.
