  • login-Based License Management

    Login-based license management (LBLM) allows Creators to activate Tableau Desktop or Tableau Prep Builder by simply logging in to these products with their Tableau Online credentials. Admins can assign, monitor, and reclaim Tableau Desktop or Tableau Prep access directly from Tableau Online instead of distributing license keys to end users. To start using this capability have your end users deactivate their existing product key and have them upgrade to Tableau Desktop 2020.1 or Tableau Prep Builder 2020.1.3 and and follow the LBLM license activation flow. Your end users can make this change over time, as we know Desktop and Prep Builder upgrades are often rolled out in stages.

    View Animations

    Viz animations help you see and understand your changing data. Easily track the logical steps behind data’s evolution and tell powerful data stories. Sorting, filtering, adding fields, and other actions will now smoothly animate your visualizations.
