Bring a new level of collaboration with real time conversations around your data. Work with your colleagues, discuss inflection points, even attach a viz snapshot to bring attention to a specific detail or view.


Web authoring improvements

Do more from the browser. You can now edit text objects, axes, filters, aliases, groups, lines, and headers with new dialogues.


Geocoding improvements

We’ve built ten times the number of cities into Tableau, and there is no longer a population threshold for cities in the US. Geocoding performance has also been improved.


Enterprise enhancements

Publish to older versions of Tableau Server

Have the newest version of Tableau Desktop, but Tableau Server isn’t upgraded yet? Now you can publish a compatible file from Tableau Desktop (down to Tableau 10.2).

High DPI

Want to use Tableau Desktop for Windows on high-DPI displays? Starting in Tableau 10.4, the interface and vizzes will scale with DPI changes.

WCAG 2.0 conformant filters

Let more people interact with your viz. Single value and multi value dropdown filters on the web now support keyboard commands and screen readers. These filters are fully WCAG 2.0 conformant.


Linear geometry shapefiles

Tableau now supports linear geometries in addition to polygon and point shapefiles. Easily visualize networks including roads and transportation routes with all the power of Tableau analytics. Join, filter, and visualize all your spatial file data.


MATLAB integration

Use deployed MATLAB models in Tableau for predictive insights, or pre-process your data using MATLAB and persist into a Tableau data extract for further analysis.


Data source recommendations

Start your analysis faster with the right data. Tableau uses machine learning to recommend existing data sources based on your organization’s data source usage metrics. It’s now easier to find the right data source for your analysis.

Data source certification

Bring a new level of governance to your analytics. Mark data sources as certified, so everyone knows they are connecting to the right data. These data sources get preference in the UI, search, and recommendations.


Okta Mobile Connect

Tableau Mobile now supports Okta Mobile Connect, providing a more seamless sign-on experience for users using mobile single sign-on.


Connector Improvements *

Extract data from SAP BW

Quickly see the results as you create and interact with your viz. You can now use extracts with SAP BW for better analytical performance.

Connect WDCs to Spatial Data

Now your WDCs can import spatial data by connecting directly to GeoJSON including points, lines, and polygons. Things are definitely shaping up.

Presto connectivity with LDAP

Connect to Presto securely, thanks to version 0.167 compatibility using LDAP.

Tableau fits seamlessly into your data virtualization strategy. With the new Denodo connector you can instantly connect to data that you’ve virtualized with Denodo.
