Join Nate Makdad for an in-depth discussion in this video Story, part of Creating Interactive Dashboards in Tableau (2015).
- So with our design hierarchy,…we're really trying to think about telling stories…with data, and one of the other tools…that people often use in Tableau…is the Story feature.…We're not going to necessarily pursue it…in this project, but I wanted to make sure…that you saw it as another way…to think about designing a hierarchy…or a flow for your Dashboard.…So within our Dashboard,…we picked on the new Dashboard,…but just to the right there,…there's a New Story feature.…It really allows you to create captions…and guide people, again,…through a series of steps or a series of charts,…so that you are telling a story with your Dashboard.…
So let's take a look at a few examples…of how people have used this,…or how you could think about using this…within your Dashboard.…So the first place, just as a general reference…which is good to go to,…is the public.tableau.com/s/gallery…it's their public gallery of dashboards…that have been used, always a good resource…to kind of come in and see how people…have been using things or doing things…
