As you may know, we recently upgraded our Tableau server version from 2018.1 to 2019.1. This new version includes several features that we want to summarize here:
Tableau has improved the browsing experience by offering a mixed content view. Workbooks, projects, and data sources within a project are now displayed in a single, filterable list. This makes it easier and more efficient to find what you are looking for.
You can read more about this change here: New Browsing Experience
This new version also includes a new feature called Ask Data, a natural language processing tool built into Tableau that interprets your data-related questions, written in plain English, and returns an answer, typically in a visual format. Read more about it here.
This month we begin a UW pilot of Ask Data in collaboration with a select group of users and folks from Tableau.
As always, if you have any questions about this upgrade please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and put “Tableau Server Upgrade to 2019.1” in the subject line.
