+ Tableau 10.5 is currently in Beta! Join us now, and explore new possibilities with our next update: Coming Soon in Tableau Software

  • Our Hyper technology (patent pending) brings faster data refreshes and query performance to Tableau extracts, plus increased scalability in a platform-wide update.
  • Tableau 10.5 also brings you viz in tooltip, allowing you to add visualizations to tooltips for better context. Plus, take charge of your content with flexible project control and improved workbook version compatibility. You can also rename workbooks, so everyone finds the analytics they need.
  • Share and collaborate on findings more easily with subscription messages and the ability to subscribe users in groups. And last but not least, IT administrators can more efficiently deploy Tableau Desktop at scale with automated Tableau Desktop license activation.

Let’s take a look at some of the biggest features: Announcing Hyper with Tableau 10.5 beta

+ We’re excited to announce an update to our Amazon Redshift connector with support for Amazon Redshift Spectrum (external S3 tables). This feature was released as part of Tableau 10.3.3 and will be available broadly in Tableau 10.4.1. In Tableau, customers can now connect directly to data in Amazon Redshift and analyze it in conjunction with data in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3).

Most Talked about Thread

Churn Rate Calculation from Vandana Samtani:

Vandana wanted to calculate the churn rate base on a given logic. The thread was well documented with a mock-up of what he wanted to do, an Excel file and a .twbx workbook.

This is an excellent way to help the fantastic other users on the forums, and it will encourage our community to provide you with the best of their help. Don't forget to thoroughly write up your thread and add meaningful documentation while keeping it short but detailed.

Shinichiro Murakami jumped on it and after some discussions, he solved the issue five days later. Thank you Shinichiro!!
