The Tableau Q4 release was recently announced, and it has an exciting new list of features for Tableau’s suite of products such as Desktop, Tableau Server, Tableau Prep, Tableau Mobile, and Tableau Data management. The top new features include Tableau External Actions, Image Role, Usage-Based Licensing for Tableau Embedded Analytics, and new Features Inspired by the Tableau Community.
Tableau Desktop and Server:
Tableau External Actions
This new feature delivers a native integration with Salesforce Flow to help automate business processes, saving time and money. When you connect your dashboards to Salesforce, you can make decisions in context and run flows without leaving Tableau. Now, you can escalate a case, send a customer invoice, and more with the click of a button.
Image Role allows users to improve insight comprehension and help end-users better connect to and understand visualizations. Image Role is a new field semantic that offers a scalable and automated way to bring image assets into Tableau. Tableau can now dynamically map images to links in your data and encode them as exportable row or column headers. This new capability makes it possible to manage image assets externally to prevent workbook sizes from becoming too large to maintain and share.
Features Inspired by the Tableau Community
Complete common tasks with greater efficiency with features inspired by the Tableau Community.
- Selectively replace data sources on a worksheet-level without complicated workarounds
- Convert strings to proper case using the ‘PROPER ( )’ function.
- Add context and enable further exploration by hyperlinking text objects using the Rich Text Editor while authoring the web.
Usage-Based Licensing for Tableau Embedded Analytics
Unlock the full benefits of Tableau Embedded Analytics in a more scalable, agile, and cost-effective way. With the latest licensing model, you can pay for usage – not users – to get flexible pricing that works for your business. This new offering brings together an innovative licensing model and our best-in-class analytics platform to maximize the value you get out of your data investments. This will allow Tableau to reach a new population of customers.
