Hidden gems in Tableau 9.2

Tableau 9.2 has just been released. It is full of several exciting features like Mapbox integration and being able to move totals, new permission settings as well as new iPhone app, it is easy to miss some small but welcome improvements.

Here are a few little features that I am sure some of you will appreciate.

Filtering on discrete aggregates : Throwing that ATTR(State) or a discrete MIN(Date) on the filter shelf is not a problem anymore.

Putting more in your LOD dimensionality : Before 9.2, you wouldn’t be able to use Sets, Combined Fields and Bins as dimensionality in your LOD expressions. Now you can write that {fixed [Profit (bin)] : AVG([Sales])} calculation you always wanted🙂

As usual, we are looking forward to your feedback on the new release!

  1. Thanks for the info. Do you mean creating sets on LOD-based dimension?

  2. I really like the new feature of search for column. It now clarifies whether it is measure, a dimension or something else

  3. Hey Bora. I just came across this. Using Superstore I tried putting ATTR(State) on the filter shelf in 9.2.2 and it doesn’t go as an Attribute. But it will go if I put it in a calculation first. A bit confusing. I like your blog, very informative. Cheers.
