Happy Monday Tableau Community!
As the newest member to the Tableau Community team I must first say that I am in awe of all the amazing data work being created and shared by all of you on the community forums. All of you are what makes this space so special. Thank you for being a part of our #DataFam!
In case you missed it, I am sharing one of my favorites from last week’s viz of the day series. This one is on UFO Sightings in America. Created by Natalie Miteva, you can check out this and other vizzes she's put together. They not only look great but have some really interesting stories to tell. Personally, I have never seen a UFO but I do keep my eyes to the skies in the hopes I might catch a sighting.
The Tableau Mobile App is getting a redesign! The app is expected to be released to the iOS App Store and the Google Play Store in the coming weeks so keep an eye out for it to drop. For any questions or feedback you may have, join the conversation around the redesign.
Are you a Tableau server or site administrator? If so, we'd like to learn about your experience of managing server and site settings. Please share your feedback directly with the Tableau product team by completing this 5-minute survey.
