Just want to understand about the IDEA section. Here people are posting their ideas, but on what basis those ideas are considered to include in the upcoming product version.
There may be several factors associated with it. Below are my comments.
Since the Tableau is a Product which is intended for a large community, it is not possible to customize the product as per the users need. It is very difficult to manage the ideas if the Tableau implements as and when it is in, it is not a good idea.
In order to streamline the requests/ideas, any product will follow some process. Comes to Tableau, people can post their requirement which makes sense to others also and Tableau may take it up based on the Votes from the users. As below along with the status (ACTIVE).
I too have added an idea, please refer this link https://community.tableau.com/ideas/8597
Please vote it if it is useful to you.
Hope my comments are useful.

There's a good breakdown of how the ideas section fits into the Tableau roadmap here, it's a mix between the popularity of the idea and how it fits in with other priorities/industry drivers.
