What's new in Version 10.3
The following features and enhancements are new:
New features and enhancements related to web authoring and interacting with views on the web are now listed in What's new in Tableau for users and Web authoring and Tableau Desktop feature comparison.
Starting with version 10.3, all topics from the Tableau Server user guide have been moved to Tableau Help, which covers exploring, analysing and consuming data in Tableau. This help is for people who create workbooks or data sources and publish them, and for people who want to see, edit, interact with and share views – in Tableau Desktop, Server or Online.
To access topics that used to be located in the User Guide section of Tableau Server Help, see Using Tableau on the web.
We welcome your feedback on this change, as well as any feedback or ideas you might have on how to make our content better. Please use the feedback bar on the top of any page ("Was this page helpful?") to open the comment field and submit your feedback.
Recommended tables and joins show Tableau Desktop users content published to Tableau Server that’s popular with others at your organisation, such as frequently used tables. To keep recommendations accurate and up to date, the server regularly checks content for new usage information. You can track this process using the "Recommendations trainer" task in the Background tasks for non-extracts view.
If you want to disable recommendations, change the tabadmin set option "recommendations.enabled" to false.
When data reaches important thresholds for your business, data-driven alerts automatically send email notifications to key people users specify. As an administrator, you set up data-driven alerts much like you do subscriptions. For details, see Set up a server for data-driven alerts. For information about how users create and manage these alerts, see Send data-driven alerts in the Tableau user help.
Data-driven alerts are supported for all sites by default, but administrators can disable them for specific ones. While viewing a site, click Settings and untick Let users create alerts and receive alert emails under Data-driven alerts.
For workbooks that connect to data extracts, Tableau Server now recomputes query results when the corresponding extract refresh tasks run. This reduces the load time for these workbooks when they are first viewed. For more information, see Configure workbook performance after a scheduled refresh.
