Gif of Data Guide

Data Guide

Data Guide is a new pane that provides helpful information about a dashboard and the data behind it. With Data Guide, you can understand if the data can answer your questions, build trust that the data is accurate, and establish confidence in your understanding of the viz. This feature makes it even easier to find data related to the selected viz, dashboard, marks, and important information like outliers and trends in your data. This pane is available on Tableau Server, Tableau Cloud and Tableau Desktop.

Data Guide also introduces two new tools to help you decide which parts of the dashboard to focus on so you can get to insights faster: Explain The Viz and Data Change Radar. Explain the Viz scans your dashboards for outlier measures and potential key drivers behind them. Data Change Radar (Tableau Cloud only) tracks measure values in your dashboard over time and automatically flags unexpected values outside of normal business patterns as data refreshes.

Table Extensions

Table Extensions add new depth to seeing and understanding data by bringing deep analytics and data shaping with code and APIs to the core of Tableau. Dynamically bring entire data tables from analytics tools like Python, R, Einstein Discovery, and more into Tableau's data model. Live query tables of data using Tableau's Data Model and pass it to analytics extensions for analysis, re-shaping, or enrichment, and return results tables to Tableau just like any other data source. With Table Extensions, you are able to inject advanced analytics and predictions at different levels of detail, bring more data for better business decisions, and get real-time results because values are re-computed dynamically.

Dynamic zone visibility

With dynamic zone visibility, you can tailor experiences for your end-users so they only see the dashboard elements relevant to them. Create sophisticated and interactive dashboards that dynamically reveal dashboard elements. In the layout pane, you configure when dashboard elements are shown or hidden based on the values of parameters and fields.

Dynamic scaling in a container

Scale Backgrounders to meet need

Dynamic scaling in a container

Advanced Management for Tableau Server customers can now scale Backgrounders, and their supporting processes, in Docker containers via Kubernetes on a set schedule. In the past, Tableau Server admins faced a predicament: pay to size the deployment for peak load times or save money but face longer delays before Backgrounder processes finish. Now, you can add additional Backgrounder resources when needed and spin them down after peak times, giving you control over the cost vs. performance tradeoff.

Activity Log in Tableau Server

Structured events for compliance and monitoring

Activity Log in Tableau Server

The Activity Log goes above and beyond existing event data by exposing more events within your Tableau environment. These events will be structured and documented. For Advanced Management for Tableau Server customers, this comes to life through a new log file in your Tableau Server logs folder. The Activity Log will make permissions auditing possible which is essential for implementing a robust book of controls on your Tableau environment.

Ask Data phrase recommendations make it even easier for business users to ask questions of their data using natural language. Powered by machine learning models, Ask Data intelligently recommends next steps to uncover insights in your data by suggesting new measures to add to your question or dimensions to group by or filter on. Selected recommendations automatically update the query sent to Ask Data and the visualized answer that is returned. More information here.

We’ve streamlined the experience for organizing your data into hierarchies and folders.

Formatting enhancements

Web authors now can format the borders and dividers of totals and subtotals cells within a table to select their preferred style. To improve the user experience, a dynamic display shows users the curated formatting settings that only apply to the visualization type and selected cells–giving a clear path of which formatting options you can change.

Data Stories on all data sources

Get to insights fast using any data

Data Stories on all data sources

You can now add automated plain-language summaries to dashboards using Data Stories on any data source. When setting up Data Stories, you will be notified that your data is sent to a cloud-hosted service. If you’d instead like to restrict use of Data Stories, administrators can disable this feature for all users through site settings. More information here.

Column-level data quality warnings

Data quality warnings can now be applied at the column level. Data quality warnings allow you to mark columns that are deprecated or stale, and those that may be displaying incorrect values.

External Assets permissions improvement

Democratize metadata curation

External Assets permissions improvement

External Assets can now be moved into projects. This change democratizes metadata curation by utilizing existing project permissions to allow more users to manage descriptions and data quality warnings.

More information here.
