Column or Field Descriptions for Easier Design
You can now add column or field descriptions to datasets. This metadata is visible in both datasets and analyses, helping you make your data self-explanatory. Click here to learn more.
Filtering Across Datasets
You can now create filters that apply to multiple datasets in an analysis. Click here to learn more.
Sorting Outside of Field Wells
You can now apply sort options on fields outside the field wells. This feature is available for all charts that support sorting. Click here to learn more.
You can now restrict access to a dataset by configuring column-level security (CLS). Click here to learn more.
New Chart Types
- Funnel Charts—Use a funnel chart to visualize data that moves across multiple stages in a linear process. In a funnel chart, each stage of a process is represented in clocks of different shapes and colors. Funnel charts are often useful in business contexts because you can view trends or potential problem areas in each stage, such as bottleneck. Click here to learn more.
- Waterfalls Charts—Use a waterfall chart to visualize a sequential summation as values are added or subtracted. In a waterfall chart, the initial value foes through a (positive or negative) change, with each change represented as a bar. Click here to learn more.
New Chart Type - Box Plot
Use a box plot to visualize how data is distributed across an axis or over time, for example flights delayed over a 7 day time period. Box plots, also known as box and whisker plots, display data pooled from multiple sources into one visual, helping you make data-driven decisions. Typically, a box plot details information in quarters: the minimum value, lower quartile, median, upper quartile, and the maximum value. Click here to learn more.
Enhanced Chart Type - Filled Maps
A filled map, also known as choropleth map, is used to visualize data over a geographical area. In a filled map, regions are represented in varying shades, colors, or patterns in relation to a data variable. The data must show a clear regional pattern.
Filled maps are often useful for representing statistical data across a geographical region. For example, a map of the average family size in a neighborhood. Click here to learn more.

Navigation actions to enable you to open a different sheet with the included parameter values. For more information, see Using Custom Actions for Filtering and Navigating.
List Control Improvements
Support for single and multi-select list control on dashboards. For more information, see Parameter Controls.
Table Chart Column Ordering
You can now reorder columns in table charts. For more information, see Using Tables as Visuals.
Percentile Calculations and Functions
Support for variations on percentile calculations, including aggregate functions percentileCont and percentileDisc and OVER functions percentileContOver and percentileDiscOver. You can use all of these functions in the calculations editor in analysis mode. For more information, see Functions by Category.
Data Set Performance and Experience Improvements
improve performance for visuals based on direct queries by specifying unique keys for joined tables. There are also multiple interface improvements, such as settings for optional autopreviews, zoom in and out of data diagrams, join recommendations, and more. For more information, see Joining Data.
