16+ Dimensions in crosstab AND a free scroll bar [RELEASED | 2019.4]

You have not voted. Released

Tableau is currently limited to displaying 16 dimensions columns in a cross tab. There are no workarounds to this limit.


To quote Ben Schneiderman's Information Visualization: Mantra "Overview, zoom & filter, details-on-demand"


Those details on demand may included more than 16 columns. When it does, users of Tableau should expect their software to deliver for them.


I don't know what the magic number of text columns should be, but 64 sounds reasonable to be released in the next version.


*16 columns before Tableau forces concatenation of columns.
