New and improved data connectors
Tableau 2021.3 makes it even easier to connect to the data you care about. You can now use Google Cloud Service accounts to create and manage your connections to Google BigQuery, and access multiple Salesforce objects at once using SOQL relationship queries.
Custom sample workbooks
New in 2021.3, you can now customise the set of workbooks displayed in the samples area of the Tableau Desktop start page, so that users can easily see and access relevant content.
In Tableau 2021.3, we've made spatial joins more powerful. Now in addition to joining between point and polygon geometries, you can make polygon/line, polygon/polygon and line/line joins to allow for more complex data analysis. We've also added more WKT and GeoJSON support so you can easily translate WKT and GeoJSON text markup from Excel and CSV data sources into usable spatial geometry in Tableau.
