Data Viz Done Right

Using Parameter Actions to Highlight a Segment of a Waterfall Chart

No comments
This viz is based on a tutorial from Ryan Sleep, which you can find here. Feel free to download the workbook to see how it's built.

A few techniques covered:

  1. Parameter actions
  2. Table calculations
  3. Gantt chart to build the waterfall chart
  4. Highlighting
  5. Formatting
  6. Calculated reference bands
  7. Dashboard layout: containers, padding

That's about it I think. For some reason Tableau Public isn't centering the text on the buttons at the top; they're fine in Tableau Desktop. See if you can rebuild it before you download it. You'll learn a lot and you'll make a great looking waterfall chart.
