​Conditional formatting could be an interesting feature to provide to final users.The data preparation/blending options are very basic. They could be improved.Tableau is a company that does not respect partners.I would like to be able to set the parameters in a more specific manner.Small multiples (a.k.a. Trellis charts) are possible only through very hacky means. Update: Still remains a challenge.Improvements in schema security and row/column security need to be made.We would like a report model, because currently there is no schema that we can create in the tool.I would like them to include the Italian language, as I can see there are other foreign language in the product.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Tableau's licensing is pretty straightforward and simple.ROI is very high, but it requires a data preparation/blending tool.We always consider pricing when considering a new solution. We are a non-profit and price is a huge concern.Tableau is an expensive solution, though it comes with its advantages.The price could be higher for the quality of software, so they revised the pricing in this version, and I agree with the price for top version. The top version costs about $70 per month, and the price is cheap for the quality.I like the payment model. For the people who need to create, they buy their licenses. Everyone else can use the free Tableau Viewer. This is much better than some of the competitor products, which require full licences for everything.The cost is high.Deployment of dashboards to viewers and unit supervisors can be prohibitively expensive.
