Tableau 2019.2 New Features

2019.2 has been a bumper release with loads of great new features: parameter actions, hide/show containers, vector maps, spatial calculations and lots more. This blog includes a links to a workbook with a number of example use cases.

Tableau Public API

Tableau Public has an API that allows you to download all the meta-data for your visualisations on the platform. In this blog post, I walk through the process and provide a template for you to build your own Tableau Public metrics dashboard.

Parameter Actions

The second beta of 2019.2 includes an upgrade to Parameter Actions, which now allow you to select multiple values and pass an aggregation of those values to a parameter. This blog explains this new feature and walks through an example.

Customisable Popup Charts

The Tableau 2019.2 beta introduces Show/Hide Container functionality, which, combined with the new Parameter Actions as well as Set Actions, allows for popup customisable charts.
