Due to limited space on dashboards, charts with many marks are often cut down to a view which shows the Top 10 or 20 marks. Sometimes we might want to investigate a mark outside of the Top N and see this included on our view. This blog outlines how to build this functionality for both bar charts and sparklines with a use case from Makeover Monday.
Often on a dashboard in Tableau there is not enough space to display all the levels of detail in your dataset. Set Action drilldowns allow the user to see a lower level of granularity before investigating the underlying data. This blog outlines how to build a bar chart drilldown. I then explain how to build different variations on design including how to show the maximum data point in the underlying data; drilldown arrow headers and vertical titles for the selected header.
Chained Analytical Apps are composed of multiple apps that run sequentially allowing a more intuitive user experience. They work by using the output from an initial app as the input for a secondary app and so on. In this blog, I outline a use case for Chained Analytical Apps and how to build them.
