Join Nate Makdad for an in-depth discussion in this video Dashboard objects, part of Creating Interactive Dashboards in Tableau (2015).
- Building the structure of our Dashboard…is done using the Worksheets…and then the available objects on the Dashboard Panel.…So, we touched upon this briefly as we were…kind of building just a placeholders…for the different components…but wanted to pause to talk a little bit more about…the components you see over on the left-hand side…of the Dashboard.…So you'll see under the Worksheets right now…we've got our Dashboard, Sheet one, two, three,…the Horizontal, Vertical, Text, Image, Web Page, and Blank.…So these are all very useful…for kind of laying out your different components,…allowing you to kind of set up the structure.…
I think the ones I tend to use the most…when building the Dashboard are the Bins…or these Horizontal and Vertical and then also the Text.…And so really,…when we talk about the Horizontal and Vertical…what you're doing is you're creating a Bin,…that then, we can allow to drop into other components.…So we did that earlier,…where we were creating the Hold controls in this Sheet.…And I can highlight this by first selecting the chart…
