What's new in Tableau 2020.4

To close out a jam packed year of releases, we got Prep in the browser, multiple mark layers for maps (and other chart types), block comments, date axis extensions and many more quality of life improvements. Hit play to find out more.

Predictive model improvements

Alongside linear regressions, Tableau has added regularised linear regression and gaussian process regression to the model types you can run in the Model Quantil and Model Percentile functions in the calculation window.

Tableau Release Notes

In 2020.3, we introduced the MODEL_QUANTILE and MODEL_PERCENTILE table calculation functions. By default, these functions use linear regression to generate predictions and explore relationships within your data. Now in 2020.4, you’ll be able to leverage two more models: Gaussian process regression and regularized linear regression. With more models supported, you have greater flexibility and can choose the model that best fits your use case.Documentation. https://help.tableau.com/current/pro/desktop/en-us/predictions_choosing_model.htm
