The new DataSelf Analytics interface – powered by Tableau 10.4 – lets business people stay in the flow with their data. Users work smarter and faster than ever. Ask your questions, get your answers, and discover questions you didn’t even know you had. Below, you’ll see a sample of valuable new features.
Make your dashboards shine with precise control over borders, shading, and padding for any item. And, easily configure spacing properties on device layouts independently of one another.
Bring a new level of collaboration with real time conversations around your data. Work with your colleagues, discuss inflection points, even attach a viz snapshot to bring attention to a specific detail or view.
Web authoring improvements
Do more from the browser. You can now edit text objects, axes, filters, aliases, groups, lines, and headers with new dialogues.
We’ve built ten times the number of cities into Tableau, and there is no longer a population threshold for cities in the US. Geocoding performance has also been improved.

Want to use Tableau Desktop for Windows on high-DPI displays? Starting in Tableau 10.4, the interface and vizzes will scale with DPI changes.

Use deployed MATLAB models in Tableau for predictive insights, or pre-process your data using MATLAB and persist into a Tableau data extract for further analysis.

Data source certification
Bring a new level of governance to your analytics. Mark data sources as certified, so everyone knows they are connecting to the right data. These data sources get preference in the UI, search, and recommendations.
