2019 Week 33: 2018 IronViz Finalist Corey Jones’s Table Challenge

This week are excited to continue the community challenge month by welcoming Corey Jones. Based out of Philadelphia, Corey was a 2018 IronViz Finalist and is an avid sports fan.

One of the great things that comes with working with a talented team is that you have the opportunity to learn from and push each other to improve. I am fortunate to work with Garvi, Kizley and (twitterless) Hima. Often we are challenging each other to solve formatting tricks or other problems. Today, I bring you a challenge from our team:

Listen, we all have had to create a table in Tableau. And if you are like me, you’ve probably been asked “Can you shade certain rows?”, or even better, “Can you make some rows bold?” Typically, I say no — because who wants to do that — but today we are going to practice. I hope you like formatting, because this week is all about creative formatting!

Requirements – Intermediate

  • Dashboard size: 900 x 600
  • Dashboard is filtered for orders in 2018.
  • You may use up to 3 sheets — no transparent sheets.
  • Create a KPI table of Sales, Profit, Profit Ratio and Quantity:
    • Table is filtered for a user selected region
    • Rows appear shaded for sub-categories where the filtered region contributes greater than a user-defined value for % of total sales
    • Row shading must remain when dashboard is filtered for subset of subcategories
  • Create a stacked bar chart that highlights the percentage of total sales coming from the selected region
    • Color the sales related to region selected — the remaining sales should be outlined
  • The title updates dynamically for region and percentage threshold.
