#TableauTipTuesday - Deselect Marks with a Highlight Action

No comments
In this video, I show you how to deselect marks with a highlight action. I take you through two use cases:

  1. Using a set action to click on a region and sort a stacked bar chart based on that region, then use a highlight action to deselect the region selected. 
  2. Using a set action to compare quarterly sales to the sales of a selected quarter. Then use a highlight action to deselect the quarter selected.

Enjoy!

#TableauTipTuesday - How to float an entire dashboard and a filter

No comments
Let's say I have a tiled dashboard and I need to float one object, like a filter. When you publish the workbook to Tableau Server, the filter objects can move around, thus messing up your design.

In this week's tip, I show you just how to accomplish this.
