Transform the way you look at data with advanced visualization training that helps deliver greater insights and better decisions.
Learn the core skills necessary to become an expert in Tableau, from data manipulation and modeling to building compelling, interactive dashboards.
1. Introducing Tableau
Our first Tableau course will show you how to connect datasets to Tableau, understand the user interface, create interactive visualizations and how to save and distribute your work.
2. Creating Visualizations in Tableau
Tableau has many excellent visualization options for your data, from simple bar charts to interactive maps and box-plots. In this course, we will step through each type of visualization, learning how and when to use them.
3. Filter, Groups, and Sets
Filters, sets and groups enable users to create custom lists and calculations that can enhance your ability to isolate certain portions of your dataset. Filters also create great interactive elements on your dashboards.
4. Dashboard Design
Creating proper visualizations is only useful if you can also arrange them into dashboards that communicate your messages effectively. This course will teach you how to do this.
5. Revamp confusing dashboards with a design audit
Help a newspaper company restore confidence in their failing customer satisfaction dashboard by guiding them with dashboard design principles. The dashboard is drab and difficult to follow, resulting in a loss of trust from key stakeholders. You'll help by reconstructing this dashboard in Tableau.
6. Prevent decision paralysis with dashboard reports
Help a meal-prep startup that's paralyzed by a lack of clear and current data. At present, reports are contained within static PowerPoint and quickly go out of date. You'll assist the company by building a valuable Tableau Dashboard that updates automatically.
7. Identify profitable airline routes with data visualization
Help an airport increase the number of direct flight routes, while minimizing the number of unprofitable flight routes.
You’ll achieve this by visualizing and analyzing passenger data to determine how these expansion goals can be met.
Formulas in Tableau
These courses take an in-depth review of formulas and calculations in Tableau. The software has it's own language for writing formulas which you will master in these courses.
1. Introduction to Formulas in Tableau
Tableau has its own Calculation Language that is similar to SQL or Excel. In this course, we’ll write some basic formulas in the Tableau Calculation Language, incorporating useful in-built functions like LOOKUP() and WINDOWSUM().
2. Further Formulas in Tableau
In our second course on Tableau formulas, we learn how to use logical functions, such as AND, IF and OR. In the second part of this course we also examine text, time and date functions and how they are best used in Tableau.
3. Level of Detail Expressions
In Tableau, it can be difficult to combine different levels of granularity in a single view. Level of Detail (LOD) Expressions solve this problem but do require some practice to master.
Advancing in Tableau
Learn more advanced topics in Tableau such as optimising your dashboards for performance, create interactive geo-spatial visualisations and learn to connect to many different data sources through Tableau.
1. Optimizing for Performance
As Tableau can combine multiple large data sources, users must monitor performance and loading times carefully. In this course, we’ll see techniques for reducing loading times, from joining data sources to changing calculations.
2. Advanced Visualizations in Tableau
This course moves beyond the regular visualizations in Tableau and shows users how to create more advanced charts such as layered maps, funnels and waterfall charts.
3. Connecting to Different Data Sources
Tableau contains connectors to many data sources, from Google Sheets to SQL databases. We’ll learn how to connect to these data sources, create joins and blends across them, and publish them to Tableau Online and Tableau Server.
Learn how to clean messy and unorganized data with Tableau Prep. This will open up Tableau Desktop to a much wider variety of data sources.
1. Cleaning Data with Tableau Prep
In this course, we'll use Tableau Prep's basic cleaning tools. We'll prepare a dataset with many errors for use with Tableau Desktop.
2. Reshaping Data in Tableau Prep
This course is about the Tableau Prep tools which enable you to reshape and reform your data. This includes merging multiple data sources, adjusting the granularity of the data and pivoting from wide to tall datasets.
