What you'll learn in this it class:

Tableau is an incredibly powerful tool for exploring and visualizing your data. This day long bootcamp will allow people with no experience in Tableau to re-create all of its major charts and turn them into a functional, interactive dashboard by the end of the day.

Once people understand the power of Tableau they can quickly perform vital business analysis that would take 3-5x times as long with other software tools. When you are finished you’ll have a fully functional capability to harness Tableau’s native powers to aggregate, visualize, filter and segment your data in a way that will breathe new life into your organization.

Schedule: Session I: The Basics

  • How to use Marks to create visual diversity with your Tableau visuals
  • How to re-create the 12 or so most commonly used charts in Tableau

  • How to manage and organize your data within Tableau with groups, folders and hierarchies
  • Table calculations: how they work, and how to use them to add additional insight into your data
  • Calculated columns: their basic syntax
  • Calculated columns: how to create conditional logic inside your charts
  • Parameters: make your filters and custom variables interactive, so you can better explore ‘what-if’ scenarios within your data
  • Fully understand the basics behind how Tableau structures its data and determines relationships between variables
