New and improved data connectors

Tableau 2020.4 makes it even easier to connect to the data you care about. We've added a Datorama connector so you can easily consume Datorama reports in Tableau. We've also upgraded the Salesforce Connector API, helping you connect to the latest Salesforce objects, including Work.com objects, and expanded OAuth support for Snowflake, allowing authentication via OAuth over AWS Private Link and Azure Private Link. 

Date axis extension

Date axis extension lets you do customised time-based predictions in Tableau. You can select from a pre-populated set of extension options or use a custom menu to select your own range. Date extension works with predictive modelling functions, table calculations like running average, and external services like R or Python.

Mapping improvements

In Tableau 2020.4, you can now add unlimited marks layers to your map from a single data source. We've also added support for Redshift spatial data to make solving location-based questions easier than ever.

Sharing your workbook with others?
If you know what versions other viewers will use to open your workbook, you can use the Export as version… option. This will let other users in your organisation open and edit a workbook even when they aren't using the latest version of Tableau Desktop (down to Tableau 10.2).

You might see an error when publishing your workbook. See this Knowledge Base article for more information.

 
Test it out first!
Take a look at the known issues and install the most recent version of Tableau Desktop to make sure everything works as expected.
  • You can install multiple versions of Tableau Desktop on the same computer. For example, if 2020.1 is the most recent version installed, it will become the default.
  • Change your default back by following the instructions here: Upgrading Tableau Desktop.
 
Installing on a new computer?
You'll have to transfer your licence from one computer to the other. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Desktop and Move or deactivate Tableau Desktop in Tableau Help.
