What's New

Tableau Online servers were upgraded to version 10.5.

Nested projects

You can now create project hierarchies when you want to segment content into sub-sections within a larger area. For example, you might create a project for each department. In each of those top-level projects, you can separate content based on how the audience uses it, such as connecting to certified data versus in-progress collaboration. For information about permissions in project hierarchies, see Use Projects to Manage Content Access.

Because projects can be nested, the default view resulting from clicking on a project has changed. When you click the Projects menu, rather than immediately seeing the workbooks in that project, you will see the Projects page. The Projects page will show nested projects when they exist. To see the workbooks contained in the current project, you will now need to click the Workbooks menu.

Extracts use new .hyper format

When you create an extract, it uses the new .hyper format. Extracts in this new format take advantage of the improved data engine, which supports the same analytical and query performance as the data engine before it, but for even larger extracts. Similarly, when you perform an extract task on a .tde extract, the extract is upgraded to a .hyper extract. For more information, see Extract Upgrade to .hyper Format.

Desktop operating system requirements (64-bit replaces 32-bit)

Starting with version 10.5, Tableau Desktop, Tableau Reader, and Tableau Public (desktop) run only on 64-bit operating systems. Version 10.4 is the last version of Tableau Desktop, Tableau Reader, and Tableau Public to support 32-bit Windows operating systems.

New in Web Authoring

  • Edit axes on the web. To open the Edit Axis dialog box on the web, double-click an axis in the view. Options available from the Edit Axis dialog box include Synchronize dual axes, clearing the axis range (Reset), and editing tick marks. You can also enable or disable Dual axis in a field context menu (right-click a measure field on Rows or Columns shelf).
  • Add text objects to dashboards and edit them.
  • Edit worksheet and dashboard titles. Double-click the title to open the Edit Title dialog box.
  • Edit trend lines and view a description of the trend model. To view the trend model, hover over any part of the trend line. To edit a trend line on the web, click a trend line and hold the cursor in place, and then click the Edit menu.
  • Trend lines now include a Power option.
  • Create hierarchies by dragging one dimension onto another in the Data pane.
  • Set the default color property for a field.
  • For quantitative color legends, advanced settings are available (dates not included).

Features in Phased Release

Features listed here will become available to Tableau Online independent of the 10.5 upgrade.

Recommended data sources

Recommended data sources show Tableau Desktop users relevant data sources published to Tableau Server and Tableau Online. These recommendations are based on published data sources used by other users in your organization with similar usage behavior as the current user.

To keep the recommendations accurate and up to date, the server checks for the following each day:

  • New content - for example, new or updated data sources.
  • New usage information - for example, Laura Rodriquez used the Food Catering data source and Henry Wilson used the Monthly Sales data source.

For information on recommended data sources, see Use Certified and Recommended Data Sources and Tables in Tableau User Help.

This list is a summary of new feature information. For additional details and help on these features, also see What's New in Tableau Online.
