What’s New in Tableau Public

Viz in Tooltip

Engage with your data at a deeper level and maximize dashboard real estate with Viz in Tooltip. Hover over a mark to display details-on-demand while staying in context of the original view.

Device Designer

We’re making sure your viz looks great on any device. With Tableau Public 10, you can design, customize and publish a single dashboard with optimized views for desktop, tablets and phones.

Google Sheets

In Tableau Public 10 we want you to be able to access you your data wherever it’s stored. That’s why you can now connect directly from Tableau Public to Google Sheets. And if your Google Sheets data updates, you can set your viz to auto-refresh as often as once per day.

Spatial Files

Since data tied to a location is so common and important, we want to make it a natural part of analysis. That's why we've added support for ESRI shape files, KML and, MapInfo file types in Tableau Public 10.
