Analytic object guidance
Better understand when analytical objects are available based on the state of your viz. Disabled analytic objects now give guidance on how to update your viz to get them.
Additional clustering functionality
Saved clustering results are no longer static, letting you use clustering analysis in more places. You can use saved clusters in different sheets, and clusters now update when data is refreshed.
Connect to spatial data directly from SQL Server
Tableau can now connect to, and visualize spatial data stored in SQL Server. Use the spatial operations supported by SQL Server to generate advanced spatial queries, and leverage custom SQL to perform advanced spatial analysis.
Viz in tooltip improvements
You can now hide the sheets used for Viz in Tooltips, the same way you would for sheets used in Stories or Dashboards.
Improved hierarchy filtering
Tableau's filters now match the hierarchies in your data. Enjoy a more effective filtering experience, as well as improvements in hierarchy filter query performance.
Dual-axis mapping improvement
Combine custom and generated latitudes and longitudes within a dual axis. Now you can build multilayered maps to visualize and analyze your spatial data with ease.
Downgrade workbooks from Tableau Server and Online
It's easier to work across different versions of Tableau. You can now download workbooks to work with an older version of Tableau Desktop (down to Tableau 10.2).
WCAG 2.0 conformant toolbars
The most commonly used functionality in the viewing toolbar on Tableau Server and Tableau Online is now WCAG 2.0 AA compliant. Customers who use screen readers, braille keyboards, and keyboard-only navigation now have more control over their Tableau experience.
Annotate and share improvements
You can now add comments and share viz snapshots via the iOS Sharing menu on your phone and tablet.
Step and Jump Lines
Make your discrete data analysis more powerful with step and jump lines. Easily change line types with one click to visualize changes in discrete values, bringing life to account balance data, inventory level data, interest rates, and much more.
