This 3 day course will introduce you to the basic features and functions of Tableau. It’s ideal for new to moderately experienced Tableau users. Advanced concepts will also be covered. You’ll gain fundamental skills to visualize your data, use a wide variety of visual types, connect to data, create basic calculations, build interactive dashboards, share visualizations, and more!
No prerequisite experience is needed, and no technical or analytical background is required.
This course is delivered in-person and includes extensive hands-on activities to reinforce concepts and skills covered. Class discussion and open Q & A are incorporated throughout the course to enhance learning.
A training guide and digital archive of all presentations, data files, dashboards, and other documents referenced during the training are provided to students as take-aways. Additional resources such as step by step instructions to create dashboards, tips & hints, and special requests are also included.
Filtering, Sorting and Grouping are fundamental concepts when working with and analyzing data. We will briefly review these topics as they apply to Tableau
In the Fundamentals class, we accepted the data for what it is! (with a basic overview of blending and joining data and working with the data engine). In the Advanced class, we will understand the difference between joining and blending data, and when we should do each. We will also consider the implications of working with large data sets, and consider options for when and how to work with extracts and the data engine. We will also investigate best practices in “sharing” data sources for Tableau Server users.
Earlier we were introduced to some basic calculations. We will extend those concepts to understand the intricacies of manipulating data within Tableau.
