After graduating from Imperial College London with a Biology degree, Janasobini quickly came to realize her passion elsewhere. During her internship at a Management Consultancy, she was introduced to the world of data analytics and couldn’t turn back. As an amateur to the data world, Janasobini was in search of new knowledge. 

That’s when she came across The Information Lab at a Women in Tech event, where she spent a day understanding the power of data and the impacts of data analytics software such as Tableau and Alteryx in aiding projects such as Operation Fistula. She was instantly hooked on the idea of visualizing data that allowed for data-driven decision making in a way that was both creative and interactive. After independently exploring and training in Tableau over several weeks, she joined The Information Lab to continue her journey in becoming an expert in Tableau and Alteryx.

Using the Show/Hide container button as a way to prompt users for additional data

Show/Hide container buttons within dashboards help to declutter the view and make it easier to understand the data. But sometimes, it is not always clear to the user that they can click the show/hide button to view more hidden data. There are many ways to resolve this but I wanted to share an idea that I think may prompt the user in a more understandable way.
