Update: Tableau 9.3 is here! Download now to try out the feature outlined below.
Ever get tired of just staring at the grey spinner on your screen, waiting for your dashboard to load? We have great news: Tableau 9.3 includes progressive-loading dashboards.
With this feature, you don't have to wait for your dashboard to load all at once; you can start interacting with parts of your dashboard while the rest loads.
First to load are the title of the dashboard and a grey layout of the vizzes.
Next, vizzes start to populate the dashboard, starting from the top. You can start interacting with your dashboard as soon as you see your viz. In this case, if you were to select something from the vizzes shown so far, then the next viz would reflect that selection.
So let’s say you made a selection in the first viz. I’ll choose Sierra Leone.
Then you’d see the following vizzes filter accordingly. Notice how the maps highlight my selection.
Progressively, the dashboard loads in sections until the whole thing appears.
