It’s been awhile since I blogged. Life in Tableau for the year 2017 has been busy and super fun!
I’m so excited for Tableau 10.5 which was released last week. One of my favorite features Viz in Tooltip is included in the release.
I thought I put together a blog post on four different style of using Viz in Tooltip.
Style 1 – Drilling down to a lower level
You can display the lower level granularity in Viz in Tooltip. I really like how easy it is now to look at the lower level granularity of data “instantly” without taking too much space in displaying them.
Please see here for the drill down Tableau workbook.
Style 2 – Mixing vizzes
You can display sales by region in a bar chart and purchase over time in a line chart.
Please see here for the mixing vizzes Tableau workbook.
Style 3 – Dashboard in Viz in Tooltip
You can display a “mini dashboard” in Viz in Tooltip in which your initial viz is a summary but the tool tip displays a “dashboard like” information.
Please see here for the “dashboard” in Viz in Tooltip Tableau workbook.
Style 4 – A Detailed list in Viz in Tooltip
One of the most frequently asked questions from my customers who’ve started in their Tableau journey is – they still would like to see data in a list. I think putting a list in Viz in Tooltip when a user hover into a category makes a great insight.
Please see here for a detailed list in Viz in Tooltip Tableau workbook.
There you go, four different styles of Viz in Tooltip. I’m interested in seeing a different style you might come up with – feel free to share 🙂
