v 1.2.0

Release Date: 23 June 2022

FEATURE UPDATES

The following improvements are now available:

  • The ability to render a Tableau card in full screen mode utilizing a public Tableau dashboard URL with a customized dashboard size option.
  • Full screen rendering support across all resolutions.

FIXED BUGS

  • TCS-40 – When a Tableau card is published to a device, the initial card loading time took more than 5 seconds to render the Tableau Dashboard.

  • TCS-45 – Certain devices load the Tableau Card multiple times when it is published in the Advanced Channel.

  • TCS-55 – When attempting to play the Tableau card as the first content on a device, the Tableau card will load as a black screen until the card duration ends. However, when the Tableau card is not the first content in a channel, the black screen is not visible during subsequence playback.

  • TCS-56 – The Poly X30 device was unable to sustain continuous playback for long periods of time when the Tableau card was published on it.

  • TCS-59 – When a valid Tableau Dashboard URL is entered, the dashboard may capture the Tableau Dashboard name but is unable to generate or load the dashboard, displaying the error message “Unable to load the dashboard.”

  • TCS-66 – When a user switches their orientation and resolution, the tableau dashboard cannot be rendered.

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
