Tableau 2020.1: Viz animations

On February 25, 2020, Tableau released Tableau version 2020.1.

I'm pretty pumped about the new feature viz animations. Besides visually appealing, it can help the consumer of the Tableau Dashboard to understand changing data faster. The logical steps behind the data's evolution might be cognitively better and faster grasped. Here's an example with Bollinger bands:

Based on Tableau's statement, the animation can be used for sorting, filtering, and other actions. I suspect a parameter change might be really powerful for KPIs.

I will test a viz animation with a KPI asap and add it to this blog post.
