Learn how to create dynamic horizontal axis titles that are below your charts using parameters.
A guide to creating a parameter which will automatically change the colours of a bar graph depending on whether a target has been met or not.
In this tutorial I will be showing you how to create string parameters that allows users to choose between different fields. I’ll also show you a neat trick to change the axis label based on what field is chosen in the parameter!
A parameter is a user-generated list of values which may or may not be present in the original dataset.
If you have read part one, then you already know how to build a dynamic axis, and, in this post, I will explain you how to create a parameter to let your user sort between ascending descending. I recommend you that if you haven’t read about how to create a dynamic axis, you can read about it here as I will build upon that post.
Parameters are one of the most useful tools that Tableau has. They allow the user to input their own values, which allow us to create self-served dashboards and dynamic dashboards that won’t require a constant update. In this blog post I will guide you through the steps of two different uses of parameters. In the first part, I will show you how to create dynamic axis that allow the user to select a different measure. In the second part, I will show you a small trick to create an ascending/descending parameter for a better user experience.
