- [Instructor] Here's the solution…to the analytics challenge.…First, we're gonna create a scatterplot…using two of the measures from our data.…Next, we need to divide this data by country,…so we'll drag that onto our Detail shelf.…Then next step is to add our reference lines.…For that, we go to the Analytics pane,…take Average, drag that onto the field,…and apply it to both our axis across the table.…Now let's edit the average to show the value.…
We change from Computation to Value,…and we do that on both our axis.…We now wanna create a highlighter tool.…To do that, we simply click on Country,…Show Highlighter, and now we have it.…The final step was to highlight some of our countries…and color code them.…For this, I'm gonna select a group of countries here.…Click on the paperclip…to group them together.…The last step is to change the color.…
Click on Color, Edit Colors,…and change it to orange.…
The training starts with one of the most important features in Tableau: the difference between the green and blue pills (discrete and continuous data) and how this affects every single action Tableau performs. Then find out how to add new maps and create more effective dashboards that maximize screen real estate. Discover how actions can link together sheets and provide greater levels of interactivity and performance, and how formatting can make an ordinary dashboard demand attention. Plus, get some bonus tips on performing date and time calculations in Tableau. This course deep-dives into the practical, applicable, and essential skills that anyone doing data visualization and analytics in a professional setting needs to have.
