Data prep is easier with Tableau Prep October update

 1 min read


Preparing data for analysis is a time consuming but vital step for using data effectively. Yesterday, Tableau made the process a bit easier with their October release of Tableau Prep Builder. There are a handful of great features included, but our top three from this new update allow you to:



• Reuse successful steps. Duplicating work is no fun for anyone. Why take the long way around when you can take a shortcut? You can now reuse successful steps in your data prep, saving time and effort.

• See the big picture. Viewing your entire flow is simpler and faster now with the miniature view available in this release. You can zoom in and out of a bird’s-eye view of your flow, quickly understanding where to focus next.
