Visual Analytics

Answer questions of your data with expanded visual analytics capabilities. Many of these visual analytics features came from our user driven Ideas Forum. Treemaps now show hierarchical data, by introducing borders around the first level of grouping. And you can put totals and subtotals where you want them: top or bottom, left or right.

Additionally, you can now match label colors to mark colors for at-a-glance understanding. Optimize the axis range for analysis by fixing one end of your axis.

Data Prep

Data can be messy. Clean it up with new data prep enhancements. Tableau can automatically detect sub-tables and convert them to connection-friendly tables with Tableau’s Data Interpreter. Craft the ideal data source: sort columns and rows, edit column names, and create calculations directly in the data grid. Quickly search and change a field’s data type with the updated data pane.

Enjoy new authentication, performance, and governance features for your enterprise deployment. Projects now get their own permissions separate from Workbook and Data Source defaults, allowing for more flexible configurations. Administrators and project leaders can now lock a project’s permissions so they automatically apply to all workbooks and data sources in the project and cannot be changed by authors.

The new toolbar puts commonly used actions at your fingertips and scales for different screen sizes.
