I often find myself building dashboards with a parameter to compare baseline data to different scenarios. Because these scenarios are built out in different worksheets, I am faced with the challenge of correctly displaying changes in results compared to each other. In the mocked-up example...

Do you ever have those watercooler debates at work that never get a real sense of finality? A coworker claims the trade OKC made for Carmelo Anthony was worth it, and you know in your heart that they are completely wrong, but you keep it...

Visualizing financial statements is hard. While not inherently a difficult task, when I speak with many of my clients' financial teams, their data tends to be some of the most sensitive that the company possesses, and for that reason, its presentation is very particularly curated....

This visualization has a personal aspect for me. In April 2017, I was approached by the Tableau Foundation to volunteer my Tableau skills to teach data literacy and Tableau Desktop to government agencies in Myanmar (formerly Burma) with the hope of empowering them with good information...

As you probably know by now, Portals for Tableau can have a completely custom theme. Each portal can look completely different from every other portal. On top of that, a single portal can look completely different depending on which groups the logged-in user is a...

So, you have this dashboard. It’s a super cool dashboard. You’ve also got an elaborate Tableau Prep workflow to feed your dashboard. Unfortunately, time didn't stop as soon as you finished this project. And with time, comes more data. So, you must go back to...

Question: In my workbook, I’ve created my own problem. I have three parameters that are identical. I’d like to only need to update one, so is there a way to swap these without having to go to every calculation I’ve created with them? This scenario happens...

Question: I’m trying to remove the decimal from my report, but I’m getting unexpected results. With FLOOR or ROUND on my calculation, I still have a decimal. How can I remove it without formatting in the format menu all the time? Questions like this happen to...
