What's Changed in the Tableau Community

Version 8

    Some things have changed around the Tableau Community - and we're pretty excited about it! We've got a brand new look. We made it easier to navigate. And we've made it easier to provide feedback to the rest of the community on the questions your facing. Here's a quick glimpse into some of the things that have changed - we hope you enjoy!

     

    The Homepage

    The welcome page may look quite a bit different - but there's much of the same content and some things that are even easier to find!

     

    You'll still be able to see what's trending and see who's on the leader board, but you'll also be able to see upcoming events, unanswered questions, and groups you maybe didn't know about.

    How to Navigate

     

    Getting around the Community is now easier experience. Instead of needing to go back to the main page or sub-page to get to major parts within the Community, there is a menu that will allow you to access the main pages quite easily.

    Resources

    You'll notice a new tab called Resources in this navigation. We've combined the Tableau Workbook Library, the Calculation Reference Library, TabWiki, and Viz Talk as these have more to do with sharing content that is useful to the community.

     

     

    Your Profile

    The profile got a major upgrade. You're now able to see your top contacts, content, and places easily in one place. You can also add more pictures to share with the community, find all the places you belong to or follow, and keep track of your community badges/missions.
