An example of how a small number of changes to the default settings can totally transform a dashboard
- [Instructor] What it's gonna look like…on a tablet or a phone.…To do that, we click the Show Preview button.…Now, we're looking at a tablet.…The black border shows us the extent of the tablet screen.…We can see now that the Heat map…has fallen off the right-hand side.…In order to correct that,…we're gonna add a layout specifically for a tablet.…Left click at Layout.…Now, we'll resize the layout to fit inside the screen.…We'll do a click all,…now we'll see the Heat map is squished up to one side.…
Let's expand the view slightly,…and that looks good.…So that happened with the tablet.…But what about a mobile?…Let's change our device type and see.…The phone screen is much smaller,…so we need to again create a new layout,…and what does it look like when we try to fit it all in.…The answer is very squished.…We need to make some decisions…about what we're gonna remove.…For our example, we'll get rid of the Heat map.…
Now we need to rearrange the remaining sheets.…We'll move the Scatter plot into the middle,…the Line at the bottom,…
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.
