Data Stories or What is Data telling us
Tableau’s mission has always been helping all kinds of data users navigate through data with ease and understand it with a simple glance. The new version 2022.2 takes another significant step in that direction by introducing Data Stories – new smart functionality, based on machine learning and natural language processing (NLP).
Data Stories can be added to any visualization, and it can automatically generate customizable dashboard summaries, which help users understand them faster and easier. What is more, the summary is presented in the form of easy-to-remember bullets and updates every time the data or the visualization changes. Adding a Data Story to your viz is simple as drag-and-drop and they are easily customizable to answer the audiences needs better. Presented initially as part of Tableau Cloud, Data Stories will soon be available to Tableau Server users as well.

Giving faster access to insights is key to Tableau and Tableau 2022.2 makes no exception. It comes with significant improvements to the search tools as well as introduces configurable Metrics, which helps you track your data at a glance and gives you a streamlined view of your KPIs.
Metrics gives the option to customize parameters such as data range, comparison type and period to quickly see how our KPIs are changing over time. If you need additional information, you can always drill-down into the connected views to get a more holistic view over your data.
