Notice for Tableau Cloud subscribers (previously Tableau Cloud) 

We roll out Tableau Cloud updates across our worldwide infrastructure for every quarterly product release over several weeks. We begin with official Cloud infrastructure upgrades and then continue to release our on-premises products (e.g., Desktop, Server) to ensure that Tableau Cloud subscribers have immediate access to our new releases.

So if you subscribe to Tableau Cloud, you may already have access to these new features on your site! To learn more about the Tableau Cloud quarterly releases, please visit the Tableau Cloud System Maintenance page

Tableau External Actions

Take action and make decisions in-context. Enable business users to run Salesforce Flows, customized data-driven workflows, from within their Tableau dashboards. Tableau External Actions delivers a native integration with Salesforce Flows, helping automate business processes to save you time and money.

Image Role

Add data-driven images at scale. Using Image Role, you can improve context recognition and help end-users better connect to and understand insights. Leveraging links in your data, Tableau can now dynamically load images as row or column headers in worksheets.

Usage Metrics

Understand how content is performing. Total views and favorites are now displayed through Metrics in the new Usage tab. With these insights, you can better understand what workbooks are popular, so you can build content that resonates with your audience. 

Swedish & Thai language support

See and understand data in your preferred language. Tableau has expanded language options to Thai and Swedish.

Data Guide improvements

Readily access key business insights. Now, Data Guide will open by default when you first access a dashboard. When you return to the dashboard, Data Guide will remain in the state (open or closed) you left it in to reflect your preferences.

Web formatting enhancements

Author on the web with more flexibility and efficiency. 

  • Conveniently access number and date formatting, including custom number formats, from a pill.
  • Apply Table Shading for Headers, Panes, and Cells to visually break up sections of your table and improve understanding. 
  • Add context and enable further exploration by hyperlinking text objects on dashboards using the Rich Text Editor.
  • Understand what formatting options are available. Formatting options for Dividers and Borders will display dynamically based on the type of visualization and pills on the shelf.

Workbook Optimizer enhancements

Implement best practices with greater precision. Enhancements to Workbook Optimizer allow workbook authors to ignore individual best practices that aren’t relevant to them, and implement specific best practices with a single click. Workbook Optimizer also includes additional best practices to help authors improve performance.
