Are you tired of manually creating charts, presentations and email updates in three different applications for a report that you need to recreate every week or month? What if there were a tool that combined all of that automatically? This course introduces you to Tableau, a visualization tool. We take you through the program’s layout and compare it to Microsoft Excel’s. Experience with Excel or any similar software might help you as this course outlines their shared functionalities and highlights differences that might impact your end result. We help you discover the built-in functions and conditional formatting that can improve your charts and data.

We begin with an overview of the various charts, maps and tables that are available to you in Tableau. However, before we jump into the user interface, we explain the nature of each chart and identify the specific types of analysis that can be completed with the available data. We then provide simple step-by-step instructions on how to create these tools using Tableau and explore more advanced versions of these charts as you study everything from horizontal bar charts to column charts with specialized shapes.

The course covers Tableau’s ability to easily manipulate and examine data. We demonstrate how to make table calculations such as percent difference, percent of total and rank. Interested in changing the look of your chart? We show you the steps to take to include suitable colours and images before demonstrating how to keep and exclude data before exporting it to your local machine and beyond. The course finishes with attention to animating your charts, which can add some flair to any professional context. This introduction to Tableau provides a solid understanding of the program’s ability to enhance your next report or presentation. Sign up today to set yourself apart from the competition.
