Join Nate Makdad for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating sets, part of Creating Interactive Dashboards in Tableau (2015).
- One component of data analysis,…is really looking for outliers,…and we can use sets to highlight those…within our dashboard by creating custom sets…and then joining them together.…In our case, we really want to figure out…which countries have the highest phone to internet gap,…but also have the highest population,…so we can see where we might expect demand…for online training to go.…So, really, sets are just a collection of values…from one of our fields and is determined…by filter criteria.…We can either make the sets static…by picking certain values,…or dynamic by using formulas…or criteria within the sets.…
So to show how we're gonna build this,…kind of our up-and-coming section of the dashboard,…because I think it's something that users might want to see.…I'm going to go ahead and add a new sheet here,…because this is going to be the foundation…of another chart for our dashboard.…So, what I want to do to create my sets,…is I'm going to go up here to the Country,…I'm going to right-click on it,…and do Create and then Set.…
