We add a lot of value to dashboards by expanding them with functionality and new types of visualizations. The new Tableau 2021.1 version makes it easier to discover our extensions with improved browsing experience and search and filter options. The best part? You don’t have to leave your Tableau workflow!

  • Stay in the flow
  • No separate downloads and files to manage
  • All extensions at your hand without leaving the dashboard
  • Filter / search on categories
  • Create your personal favorites

How does it work?

Before the update you had to download the .trex files from the Tableau gallery and save them locally on your computer and now you can easily find and use them through the integrated quick access menu in Tableau! Here is how it works step-by-step:

  1. In Tableau, open a dashboard inside your workbook.
  2. Drag the extension object to your dashboard.
  3. The ‘Add an extension’ dialog box will pop up where you can select the extension and add it to your dashboard.

Search for extensions based on various categories and features

…or navigate to your previously downloaded .trex file by clicking ‘My Extensions’

  1. If asked, allow or deny full data access to the extension. Do you want more information about data security? Check our policy.
  2. If allowed, follow the instructions given to set up the extension. Do you need more support on setting up the extensions? Check our documentation page!

We hope you are just as excited about this new update as we are! We love to make extensions and help Tableau users to do things more efficiently. If you have feedback, ideas, questions or need support, please make sure to share it with us! Also, don’t forget to follow us on social media for our latest news and updates.
