Current Events

User Group Meeting February 13th at Greater Philadelphia Chamber

Weigh in on the topics listed below and others here on the Tableau Community Page

For our February Tableau User Group meeting, we invite you to join us in the afternoon for some hands on working sessions.  Monday, February 13th 1-4 PM at the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce MarsDrinks Conference Room.

You asked for more in depth and hands on sessions so we have expanded the meeting time and will focus on step by step in workbooks. Refreshments will be provided.  We will head out afterwards for some networking.

  • Cross-database joins – The moment we’ve all been waiting for is here! Tableau 10 finally allows users to join tables from different databases using the data source connections tabs. This is a critical feature that brings Tableau up to speed with other leading vendors in the space. To help users keep track of which database each table comes from, Tableau has implemented color-coded connections.
  • Filtering across data sources – Alongside the cross-database join functionality, Tableau 10 now also enables users to apply a single filter that spans across all related data sources.Now, users can instead choose to apply a filter to “all using related data sources,”, instead of filtering each data source individually or relying on parameters and filter actions that limit the presentation of the filter options.
  • Cluster analysis – Tableau 10 has added a clustering function to the Analytics toolbar. The clustering function uses k-means to cluster the data set based upon the measures and dimensions that are dragged into the new Cluster Variables card. You can specify the number of clusters that you wish to have or you can leave the Number of Clusters field blank and Tableau default to the ideal amount.
  • New data source connections – Tableau 10 has added a variety of new data source connection types. You can now connect to Google Sheets, Quickbooks, and many other commonly used sources.
