Challenge

This week you are building something that looks like a text table. But there are a few twists, including the fact you cannot use text as a mark type.

Requirements

  • Use the shape mark type.
  • Do not create a custom mark type that is transparent.
  • Round sales to the nearest dollar. Make sure the values are right-aligned.
  • Make sure to add banding that alternates from sub-category to sub-category.
  • Place a red arrow down (▼) to the right of sub-category sales that are down compared to the year previous.
  • Place a red arrow down (▼) in front of a sub-category label in the table if sales were lower in 2018 compared to sales in 2015.
  • Show only order dates for 2016, 2017, and 2018 in the table.
  • Colors are Dark gray (#414141), medium gray (#6B6B6B), and red (#F36754)
  • Be able to slice the data by Region.
  • Match tooltips
  • BONUS: embed a visual in the tooltip that shows yearly sales on a continuous axis and has a “▼” on the years where sales were down compared to the year previous.
