I'm back to the blog after a long hiatus and a trip just about around the world. I left work in San Francisco, flew to Raleigh-Durham to get married, honeymooned in London and Thailand, and have just wrapped up back to back great weeks at...

The Tableau 8 Beta was released to conference attendees last week, the beta program gets the software out to real world content producers and gives Tableau feedback on any bugs or last minute feature requests. Tableau do a great job with their releases, as each...

I’ve used several tools for extracting data from Google Analytics (GA) in the past so I was particularly excited to find out about the new connector in Tableau V8 straight in to GA.  Once you click Google Analytics from the list of data sources, you...

I am often asked in my classes when a user would need to use custom geocoding. In Tableau, custom geocoding is a little-known feature that is often underused. In my post today I'm going to go over why you would want to use custom geocoding,...

Parameters in Tableau Software are one of the more interesting and valuable aspects of the tool (when they work). As with most things, what you want to accomplish (with limited resources) can force some valuable insight, not to mention innovation. So, here’s the question: Can I...

One of the requests we get quite often is can you set Tableau to have interchangeable charts on a dashboard so that when the user can select which chart to show in a particular place on a dashboard. Whilst not out of the box this...

After working in Seattle with the wonderful folks at Tableau for the last week I was reminded of the incredible significance of Tableau Server. I have found that we often look at Tableau Server as a self –service tool. We see it as a tool...

Recently NASDAQ OMX released their NASDAQ Economic Calendar Reports on Facebook. One of these reports attempted to explain that consumer confidence rose 6% month-over-month in July 2012. Unfortunately the visualization was so poorly designed that this information is almost impossible to extract. Thankfully for you,...

This is our second belated post on producing art in Tableau. Well strictly speaking the visuals are more mathematically generated patterns with parameterised variables...

‘The enormous multiplication of books in every branch of knowledge is one of the greatest evils of this age; since it presents one of the most serious obstacles to the acquisition of correct information by throwing in the reader’s way piles of lumber in which...

While teaching an Advanced Tableau session in Washington DC last week, we ran across a great little puzzler that highlighted to me the value of discussing data structures. Working from one of Tableau's standard data sets, the Superstore, the question was "Can we use Tableau to...

If you’ve ever wanted to be able to send an email to a colleague because the dashboard you’re viewing in Tableau is just too good to pass up, this might help you out. In the following dashboard, we’ll accomplish a few things: 1.)    Use URL actions to...

Heading to my house in Durham, North Carolina and looking forward to a long bike ride and fresh peaches at the market. Spent this last week in New York City working with a great client with some true Big Data; as part of a follow-up...

Kickstarter has been making waves in recent months as the premier place for crowd funding.  Projects range from big to small, from purely entertainment to potentially life changing. There’s a lot to love about this dream factory. However, there’s been controversy as well.  All projects are not always what they appear...

Building on the KPI tutorial from Tableau found here, I would like to add a neat trick to increase your data-pixel ratio and remove additional clutter from your KPI charts by using a custom shape. The premise is based on Stephen Few and Edward Tufte's...
