Learn the difference in layout between story-based and tab-based dashboard layouts.
- [Instructor] You often hear a lot about telling stories…with data, and within Tableau, one of the dashboard…design principles will be about whether we want to guide…people through a series of story points…or provide maybe more interactivity to let people…explore on their own.…So in Tableau, there is a function called story…which lets you create a series of captions…and dashboards to guide people through those series…of dashboards.…So part of this is not overwhelming people with…all the charts on one page, but really guiding people…maybe through a series of steps.…
So down here in Tableau, so we created the dashboard…one over, is the story feature, and so if you click…on the story feature, it's going to give you the option…to drag sheets over or drag information over,…and then continue to add kind of new stories…across the top so that you could walk people…through each of these tabs or each of these story titles.…So let's take a look at a few examples of dashboards…posted at the public Tableau gallery.…
