EDBI Team Recommends New Version of Tableau

By Lailah Hoque


The EDBI Team recommends using Tableau 2020.3.7 (Tableau Desktop and Prep Builder). Instructions to download can be found in the KB document, Tableau Getting Started Guide. Tableau Desktop and Prep Builder are available to all users with Creator Licenses.

This version is an upgrade from our previous recommended version, 2019.4. This upgrade provides new features from Tableau versions 2020.1, 2020.2, and 2020.3.

Some exciting new features include:

  • New data modeling capabilities with relationships that allow less upfront data preparation.

  • New dynamic parameters that allows Tableau to automatically update a parameter's list of values every time someone opens a workbook.

  • Flow inputs and outputs can now be set to refresh incrementally, so that only new rows are retrieved and processed when flows are run.
