Tableau Prep Builder in the Browser

Prep your data  from wherever you have access to a browser, making it more seamless, accessible, and scalable.

Tableau Prep Builder in the browser allows you to prep your data from wherever you have access to a browser, bringing the data prep process into one integrated platform on the web. No need to manage individual desktops, IT admins can now upgrade the server to get everyone in the organization on the latest version.



Web Authoring Enhancements

Bring your analytics on the web to the next level with the functionality you’ve been waiting for, including highlight actions, filters, fixed sets, extract creation, and a Salesforce connector.

Highlight Actions

Call attention to marks of interest and identify important relationships in the data.

Mark labels

Quickly make adjustments to your mark labels in web authoring to stay in your workflow. Customize and choose which marks to label in a visualization, just like in Tableau Desktop.

Apply filter to worksheets

You can now use the apply filters to the worksheets' dialog on the web, choosing which specific sheets a filter should be applied to, as well as tuning dashboards, and achieve more complex and connected dashboard designs.

Create fixed sets

Creators and Explorers now have an easy way to create a set either from the data pane, or visually via the tooltip command menu for quick analysis.

Make extracts

Create extracts without leaving the browser. In the web authoring flow, you can now choose to extract your data sources to improve performance.


Spatial Analytics Updates

Tableau Prep Builder can now import, recognize, and export spatial data to extracts and published data sources, bringing spatial context into the data preparation flow for better analysis.
Bring multiple spatial layers and context together with multiple marks layer support for maps for better geospatial analysis.
Also enjoy Redshift spatial support, offline maps for Tableau Server, and spatial support in Tableau Prep.
