Data Track: Tableau 2, Advanced session

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Advanced design and interaction in Tableau Public: Analyzing data and coming up interactive visualizations is easy in Tableau, but sometimes getting everything looking polished isn’t. In this session you will learn how to break away from the default formatting in Tableau Public to create interactive data graphics that match your style guides and engage your readers. You will learn how to change colours, shapes, borders, fonts, and other basic formatting, and to incorporate images, logos, and other graphic elements. You will learn how to take advantage of advanced interaction techniques to incorporate multimedia and utilize design and layout best practices to make sure that your visualization looks polished and professional.

Tableau Public is a free tool for journalists. Some familiarity with the product is recommended; a beginner session earlier in the day should prepare you enough for this session. Please bring your own laptop with Tableau Public already installed. (Please visit https://public.tableau.com/s/ to download the free Tableau Public Desktop application.)
