This week's video is an extension of the great blog post by Kevin Taylor on the Tableau blog about how to create full year heatmap calendars. This video shows you how to add month labels to the visualisation.

  1. I noticed the "Shootings" example displays days with no data. Last time I made a run at a calendar like this in Tableau, I was having trouble building the calendar framework so it would display days even when there's no data to display for that day.

    1. You can only display days when there is data to display. If you want to show all days even when there isn't data, then you'll need to blend or join to another data source that has every single date.

  2. Hello, sorry to bother you, but the week label, when I change to text it seems work erratically.
    Instead of showing always -2, sometimes shows -10 or -8. Do you picture What I am doing wrong?

    Thank you in advance!
