I received a question about the a workaround for selecting all in a filter. In this tip, I show how to guide your users to select specific data items, because sometimes that's what your data demands. Because your data is the boss.
That little question about a workaround for All led me to a better discovery. One where I think angels sang. At least they did in my head. It's the apply button. When you customize and show all, you now become the #vizboss. That's right. Your view updates when you say so, not after every selection. Yay for timesavers! You go you #vizboss.
Hi friends! For my friends who love alliteration, here are two tiny tips to titillate on a Tuesday :) For everyone else, here are two tiny tips.
Change Defaults for Similar Items
When I found that we could change default properties for multiple items at once, it was like efficiency angel sang!
Search and Ye Shall Find...Your Data Item Easier
Typically, I just connect to my data and go to worksheet 1. However, the other day, I needed to spend a little time in the data source window, so this week, I have two Tiny Tableau Tips that are all about the data. I'm also a fan of tips where I can...
Thanks Ron Popeil! I love your saying and rotisserie chicken. So now onto the tip.
Data Source Sort Fields
There ya have it! Two tiny Tableau tips from the data source window and more to explore!
I love the whole idea for exploring and sharing tiny tips in Tableau. Who knew a Think Data Thursday could have such an impact! Haven't seen it yet? Get on that! Not only do I feature my favorite tips, but also ones from the community. It's a bunch of awesomeness (at least for me). So I had this bright idea to do Tiny Tableau Tips on Tuesdays. The alliteration for this sends me to into super happy excited land. So each Tuesday, I'll explore and share a video (via Twitter first) on a tiny Tableau tip. We can even have a Tiny Tableau Tip Twitter Party at 5am eastern (for a few minutes at least). I hope you enjoy this series as much as I do.
This week's video is on the drop down carrot. I hope you enjoy!
What's This About?
After using Tableau in my last position, I'm now a data viz hobbyist and this is my little slice of world dedicated to data visualization...typically Tableau related.
