Greetings Tableau Community,


Welcome to the first Digest of 2019! To kick things off for the New Year, why not try out the latest 2019.1 Beta version, available now at our pre-release site


2019.1 Beta is here.JPG      2019.1 features.jpg

We welcome your valuable feedback on the new features that the 2019.1 Beta brings - tell us what you think about Ask Data and Tableau Prep Conductor. Speaking of the New Year, how are those fitness resolutions going?! If - like me -  you've only just dusted off the Fitbit and dragged yourself back to the gym, then get inspiration from the latest blog by  Yvan Fornes on Tableau Public.



   Don't forget there are only a few days left to get your voice heard for the 2019 Zen Master nominations. If you know someone that has a great understanding of Tableau, is happy to help others at all levels and is an awesome collaborator on the Community Forums, then we would love to hear it!  Amanda Boyle has written a blog with all of the details. Get those nominations in before 10.00pm PST Friday January 11th 2019



  In other news, on January 18th Tableau Online will be removing support for TLS 1.0/1.1 in favor of the more secure TLS 1.2. For full details, please refer to the post by John Blackie
