    Metrics

    Monitor the KPIs for your business from anywhere

    Metrics are a simple way to get a curated and consistent view of your data. Create a Metric from nearly any Tableau dashboard with a single click and view your metrics across multiple dashboards in one spot - either on the web or the Tableau Mobile app. Metrics are fully integrated with Tableau's data and analytics platform and optimized for consumption on Tableau Mobile.

    Metrics is a new model for understanding data. Instead of analysis Metrics focuses on tracking and monitoring. It builds on an entirely new stack designed to be highly scalable and to deliver speed of consumption at broad scale. Metrics give an at-a-glance indication of changes over time while letting people explore deeply if they choose. A metric isn’t just a thumbnail that has to be clicked on and loaded – it’s a quick and up to date view of your key business data available anytime and anywhere. Metrics are fully integrated with Tableau's data and analytics platform and optimized for consumption on Tableau Mobile.

    Relationships

    Analyze data at the right level of detail

    We’ve enhanced Tableau’s data model with relationships to help you easily analyze data from multiple tables at different levels of detail. By visually creating logical relationships between tables, Tableau will only query the data relevant to your analysis at the right level of detail. Combine tables with confidence for more flexible, intuitive analysis of complex data.

    For more information, see Combine data using relationships (new data modeling capabilities).

    Open or upload workbooks on the web

    Upload workbooks directly to your site

    Sharing your work and exploring insights from others just got easier. You can now open a Tableau workbook, or upload it straight to the web without having to use Tableau Desktop, REST API or TabCmd. Simply select the workbook (.twb or .twbx) you want to upload and publish directly to your site on Tableau Server or Online. Only users with the appropriate publishing permissions will have the ability to upload content.

    Until now, users have had to use Tableau Desktop in order to publish a twb or twbx file. Now, customers can publish a workbook in a similar way to how they are used to uploading a file on other content to sites like Google Drive, OneDrive or Dropbox enabling them to view and share their dashboards faster.
