Has anyone ever used the Bookmark functionality in Tableau? Does anyone even know what it is? Well I certainly didn’t until recently, so thought it would be helpful to share with the Tableau Community. Is there ever a single worksheet that you have created in Tableau that you need to access frequently in multiple workbooks? If yes, then every time you need to access it, you either: ·      Have to reconnect to the Data Source and re-create the worksheet ·      Open the workbook...

In #TodaysTableauTip were going to look at a common formatting problem when creating tables to show lists of dimensions. You may have noticed that when you create a table in Tableau, Tableau uses “ABC” as a placeholder for a measure to accompany dimensions (see below): This is not ideal, especially if you wanted to create a worksheet as a contents pages of sorts (or even a sheet to highlight dimensions, as above, only) – it doesn’t look very nice. Now you can try and...

So, as a Tableau user, we all know that we can create custom calculations by right clicking on the dimensions or measures shelves and going to “Create” > “Calculated Field”.  This new calculation will then get saved as your Measure or Dimension But did you know, you could also create calculation within your visualisation shelves whilst creating a view. Let me show you what I mean: Consider the following visualisation, a simple table in Tableau: Now, say I wanted to change the Sum...

Consider the line graph below, here we have a variety of different coloured lines lines representing the values of various dimensions over a range of dates. These sorts of lines charts are often used to highlight seasonal variation or used to make predictions around future forecasts. They are very useful, and most common when doing any sort of time series analysis. However, I think you'll agree that mostly because of the dimensions as colours, it's a little bit confusing. Frequently, when...

Joining in tableau is pretty simple , though with some limitations. The first thing you need is a data source with multiple tables, either a connection to a database server, or an excel workbook with multiple tabs. To join two tables you simply drag and drop tables onto the data manipulation pane, Tableau will try to create a link between the two tables, looking for fields with similar or identical names and perform a join on them. The default for these kinds...

It is general best practice to back up Tableau Server regularly, whether nightly, weekly, or monthly. An optimal schedule depends on how often content on the Tableau Server is updated, and your business continuity requirements.  When I managed the Tableau Server at Virgin I backed up every night because of the volume of content changes. I found that the backup process was also an great time to trim the Tableau Server logs of older activity. Cleaning the logs reduced the overall...

One of the nice aspects of tableau is that it automatically assembles dates into hierarchies that can be drilled down into and used in a view. However if you have as part of your data a natural hierarchy then you can create a custom hierarchy that users can drill down and roll up to perform analysis.

One of the continuing problems I've found with map based data comes from values and sizes, if you place a measure on size for map marks you can end up in the position where many of your marks are too small to see, dwarfed by the much larger marks, and while this may be visually accurate its not very visually appealing especially if you are concerned with spread as much as size, as I've found while putting together a viz...

Well, there’s actually a really simple way around this in Tableau through the calculation function MAKEDATE().

I could “go to sheet” and change the view, but did you know you could actually change the view from the Dashboard itself.
