Visualizing time

by Alexandra Hanna

The last of my tips is finally here! So I have been building a calendar view in Tableau ever since I first downloaded my free trial. As it has been really effective with already two clients (out of three), I recommend you to try this at home and quickly gain the ability to visualize cyclical time events. Please follow the following steps:

  1. Drag a ‘weekday’ date dimension onto columns
  2. Drag the same dimension as ‘week’ onto rows
  3. Filter by ‘month/year’
  4. Drag measure onto color in the Marks card
  5. Label by ‘day’
  6. Result!

Happy Friday!
