Join Matt Francis for an in-depth discussion in this video Pills: Solution, part of Tableau 10 for Data Scientists.
- [British Man] So first we're gonna create the bar chart,…and for that we want to look at the…region and states, and the profit.…We're gonna put our region on our right.…Second, we put state, and finally we put profit on column.…Now we want to color this, and to do this…we take profit out of the measure section,…and drop that on the cover shelf.…And let's just use the red/ green color palette,…which we know is not a good choice,…so let's go ahead and change that…for a colorblind-safe one.…
After that we're gonna use the orange/blue divergent.…We hit apply, and we're done.…So now we went in to filter and…we want a filter on our regions,…so for that we can take region, put that on filter,…and I'm gonna pick the Central and East to look at.…Finally, we want to filter on profit,…for any interest in state where we made…less than $10,000 profit.…So for that we take profit, again from the measure shelf,…on to filters, we say we're interested in the summer profit,…and at most we want to filter to 10,000.…
Now okay, and now we have it.…
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.
