Join Matt Francis for an in-depth discussion in this video Dashboard: Solution, part of Tableau 10 for Data Scientists.
- [Voiceover] Here's a solution to the dashboard challenge.…First, we'll get rid of the bar chart.…We've got too many sheets in the view.…So remove the bar, as it's not really…adding anything to the overall look, remove that.…Next, we're gonna remove the filters.…Instead of filters, we can use actions…to drive the dashboard.…Next, we're going to make the legends floating…and put them close to the sheet.…The first step is to make the container itself float.…Now, we'll rearrange the sheets…to the most appropriate order.…
We're going to be using the map…as the trigger for our filter actions,…so we want to put that top left.…The other elements we can move around to wherever we like.…Now, we can move the individual legends…closest to the sheet they actually refer to.…Float it down, instead of having them…in the top right, isolated on their own.…I'm going to expand the Heat map…to fit all the available area.…Now, we need to add the actions to our dashboard.…

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.
