Tableau 8.1 Keyboard and Mouse Shortcuts

Transcribed from: Tableau's online help.


  1. Odd that they'd invest so much time into so many shortcut keys yet, at the same time, make the arbitrary decision to eliminate the hotkeys.

    1. I'm still really annoyed that Tableau removed the "Duplicate Sheet" menu option. It was on the Edit menu in 6.1, nowhere to be found in 7.0.
      In fact, they made a real hash of the menu system organization with 7.0 and haven't straightened it out yet.

    You have a very nice blog Chris!

  3. Thanks, Chris. Keyboard navigation and commands in Tableau (or rather, the lack thereof) are a big problem for me, as I do most of my computing by voice, and I also like to be efficient. Tableau 8.1 made the situation even worse, rather than better. If Tableau really cared about "speed of thought" I think we'd see better options on the keyboard. For those who are interested In seeing improvement in this area, please vote for the idea on the community site:
