About this event

Join us for our next Analytics Tableau User Group! The event will take place on May 30rd at 6PM Paris Time - 12PM New York Time - 9:30PM New Delhi

As always we will have amazing speakers :

  • Silvia Romanelli will present "Don’t scare users away. Learn to assess your dashboard’s usability."

When a dashboard is not used by its intended audience, one of the causes is often poor usability. In this talk Silvia will introduce a few UX principles to assess usability, mainly inspired by the Heuristic Evaluation method conceived by Jakob Nielsen.

She will talk about the concepts of “discoverability” and “interaction cost”, the importance of feedback from the interface, the use of standards and consistency... and shows how to apply them to dashboard design evaluation. At the end of the talk, the audience should be able to start using this UX approach to identify potential usability issues in dashboards, and recommend solutions.

  • Ant Pulley will present "Animation, Interactivity and Ridiculous Ideas"

Ant will talk through how his ridiculous ideas come to fruition in Tableau, and how he utilises Animation, interactivity and plenty of hacks to get them working!

  • Samantha Hill and Tom Pierre will present "Using Tableau to help Homeless Animals"
Every day, animal shelters are collecting intake and outcome data. Shelter Animals Count was established in 2012 to be the National Database for this intake and outcome data to allow for national reports and trends. As shelters and rescues work to save more lives, data such as intake, outcome, and animal level is being used to request resources and donations and get the community engaged.
This TUG session tackles how Shelter Animals Count is using Tableau to help animal welfare organizations access and understand their data to improve the lives of animals in their care and engage with their communities. Shelter Animals Count staff are going to talk about their work and share two different visualizations that can be used strategically to engage community solutions to the shelter population crisis.
