New and Improved Data Connectors
Tableau 2021.2 makes it even easier to connect to the data you care about. We've added HANA bind variable support and made additional changes to improve SAP HANA performance, and added a native Datorama connector so you can create harmonized Datorama reports in Tableau.
Tableau 2021.2 brings a more flexible web authoring experience. Creators can now transition seamlessly from web authoring to Tableau Desktop with the click of a button, without having to download the workbook.
In Tableau 2021.2, we've added the ability to control the visibility and interactivity of marks layers without editing the workbook. If enabled by the author, users can use the new toggle settings to customize the map view. We've also added area spatial calculations, allowing you to measure the square area of your selection on a map in the units you specify, making it easier than ever to answer location-based questions.
