Improved relationships

In Tableau Desktop 2020.3, you can now relate tables based on inequality operators or calculated fields. We’ve also improved the drag-and-drop experience, so you can drag and drop to replace a table in the data model.

IN operator for calculations

The IN operator for calculations has arrived in 2020.3. This feature makes it much easier to compare lists of values – even large lists. Use the IN operator to test whether a value matches any value in a list, a set or combined fields like city/region combinations.
The IN operator supports string, numeric, data and boolean data types.

Mapping improvements

We’ve added new options to the Background maps menu, and updated the UI to make it even easier to add Mapbox maps, WMS maps and more! We’ve also added the ability to union spatial files.

Sharing your workbook with others?
If you know what versions other viewers will use to open your workbook, you can use the Export as version… option. This will let other users in your organisation open and edit a workbook even when they aren't using the latest version of Tableau Desktop (down to Tableau 10.2).

You might see an error when publishing your workbook. See this Knowledge Base article for more information.
