Join Matt Francis for an in-depth discussion in this video Pills: Challenge, part of Tableau 10 for Data Scientists.
- Instructor] To see if you understood everything…about green and blue pills, here's a challenge.…I want you to build a bar chart,…and I want it to show the profit by region and state.…Then I want you to color it by the sum of profit,…but we know that the color is gonna be a poor choice,…so I want you to change the palette…for a color-blind safe one.…Next, I want to filter data…to only show two regions of your choice.…And finally, we wanna filter by profit.…We're only interested where the profit is less than $10,000.…
This should take you around five minutes.…
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.
