          hi Govind,

           

          So you can use any custom shape in Tableau. To add to the default list...

           

          Get the icon you want Free vector icons - SVG, PSD, PNG, EPS & Icon Font - Thousands of free icons is a great place to get them (and you want them in .png so you get transparent background)

          Create a new folder in the shape folder in My Repository (usually in My Documents)

           

          and copy the icon/image into the new folder (you can see I have one for AdVizture, Atheon...etc)

           

          You will now have access to this, when you select your shapes in Tableau

           

           

          If you can't see them, hit the Re-load shapes...

           

          Let me know if that doesn't make sense.
