Data

Since I have started using Tableau Prep, I can’t overstate how helpful it has been for cleaning, shaping and exploring my data before I start visualizing it in Tableau Desktop. However, one concept eluded me at first, and that was the Aggregate step. Why add...

With the release of Tableau Prep in April 2018, analysts have been given an incredibly valuable tool for their analytical kit. Considering both performance and ease of use, prepping your data before it enters Tableau Desktop has many benefits. I’ve created the following walkthrough to...

Table calculations enable you to do amazing things in Tableau. However, these work off of data that has already been aggregated. For example, a moving average is the moving average of the sum of some metric for each period. What if we needed a way...

I have always been interested in personality types. They are helpful in giving clues into how people think and behave. So, I wanted to build a dashboard to allow people to explore how they compare to others who have taken the Myers Briggs Personality Test....

It's something that keeps us all up at night - will the robots take over tomorrow? Okay, maybe you don't worry about it. And neither does Daniel Whitenack. Daniel is a data scientist, professor, podcaster, and innovator in the space of artificial intelligence and machine learning. And...

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...

A little change of pace this show. Today, Robert talks with Henry Zhu, one of the core maintainers of Babel, about open source and what it means for people and software, community, and development. They even talk about some real-time visualizations with Pokemon and the Super...

If you have ever been in one of my Tableau training courses, you have probably heard me refer to Tableau’s format pane as “the Bermuda Triangle of Tableau” because it can be easy to get lost. What is great about the format pane is that...

Question: I know I’m doing something wrong. When building views, my alias in one view overwrites my alias in another. I know I’m missing something here. Can you fill in what I’m missing? When building reports, sometimes you need a different header name. Right-clicking the header...

Before we look at data preparation using Excel and Tableau Prep, we need to ask a question. It’s always a healthy discipline to ask questions first and use technology to answer them second. Take a look at the question, look away from the screen then take...
