What

Please add features that step-by-step document the shortest route on how one can re-build active workbook.

 

How

Screen replay of current worksheet to new worksheet  with comments

Screen replay of current workbook to new workbook

Export screen replay definition file (so one quickly can make a new workbook)

Export built-in self-documentation to a descriptive document (html, odt, docx, pdf, etc)

Option to choose individual worksheet(s), dashboard(s), or all workbook

Option to control speed of replay (when automatic)

Option to pause and go back or forward manually

Option to jump to "chapters" such as connect to data, calculated fields, and build view

And no doubt many other things too

 

Why

It saves time documenting workbooks

It saves time re-creating workbooks

It makes it easier to learn Tableau

It makes it less difficult to understand unfamiliar workbooks

It makes it easier to share one's knowledge with others

 

Inspiration

I have been thinking about automatic self-documentation for some time, but was encouraged to request this now by reading  David Walp's  interesting idea in  Please document your content!
