Greetings Tableau Community,


As we approach the end of the year it seems timely to consider the Top 10 Business Intelligence Trends for 2019. Its exciting to think about Ask Data - Tableau's new natural language capability. Why not try it for yourself with the 2019.1 beta, available here .

Community Highlights

We recently moved some additional content in to the Tableau Public space in the Community, so feel free to check it out and join the conversations! Speaking of Tableau Public, there are lots of great vizzes out there to help inspire you. This one by Chee Ann is pretty fun! How to tell if I'm dating the right guy. Another one that caught my eye was by Will Perkins on Lego and how brick diversity changed over time.



That's all for this week folks. Don't forget if you have any vizzes or events you would like to share with the Community, you are welcome to reach out to us at
