v 1.1.0

Release Date: 19 May 2022

FEATURE UPDATES

  • During dashboard playback, if the dashboard fails to load (because it was removed in Tableau), during the following instances:
    • Editing & Preview mode: An error message “Unable to load the dashboard” is displayed.
    • Device playback: The card will be skipped and will not be displayed.
  • When an invalid URL link is entered in the Dashboard URL input field, an error message “This is an invalid URL. Please try again” is displayed. When the user clicks away from the input, but within the card region or outside it, the error message and invalid dashboard URL will be cleared.
  • Standardizing the Tableau card screenshot thumbnail to show up to two lines of dashboard name. Currently, the Tableau card thumbnail allows the dashboard name to wrap up to four lines, which differs from the behavior of other Dashboard cards (Power BI and Salesforce).

FIXED BUGS

  • TCS-54 – When entering a valid Tableau Dashboard URL, the dashboard can capture the Tableau Dashboard name however it is unable to render the dashboard and infinite loading is seen.
  • TCS-43 – After editing and saving a new dashboard URL, the Tableau card Preview tab is not updated with the most recent dashboard.

v 1.0

Release Date: 31 March 2022

FEATURE UPDATES

Tableau Dashboard Support

This release sees the support for Tableau public account dashboards, via the Appspace Tableau card. Users only need to input a URL to their Tableau dashboard from a Tableau Public account.

The Tableau card connects to a variety of data sources, allowing users to aggregate business intelligence data into dashboards. Appspace users can display their Tableau dashboards on digital signage.

The following features and improvements are available once the card is configured:

  • Ability to share URL links from the Tableau public dashboard to be viewed in the Tableau dashboard card.
  • Ability to update and amend the selected dashboard.
  • Ability to preview the dashboard and adjust the display preferences, such as:
    • Modify the Resolution
    • Alter the Orientation

For configuration instructions, please refer to the Cards: Displays Tableau Card article.
