New in Tableau Prep Builder: Visual filtering and improved data standardization

Preparing data for analysis often involves setting up filters, duplicating fields, or standardizing values—all error-prone tasks that often involve writing complicated calculations. In the newest release of Tableau Prep Builder (2019.2.3) , we’ve simplified your workflow. A new visual filter allows you to select distinct values to filter, including ones not in your sample. Duplicating fields is now possible with a single click. Lastly, Recommendations detect and suggest data roles (real-world meanings of your data values) to help validate your data fields. They also now automatically match invalid values to valid ones. Last year, we added Data Roles to Tableau Prep Builder to help you automatically identify data quality issues, and in April we let you automatically fix invalid values by replacing them with the closest valid values using the Data Role Matches grouping algorithm. This one-click action saves you time cleaning up your messy data, but it only works with...
