As we hit 2 years of HETUG, we'll reflect on how we've grown, and we'll all get to participate in an epic lightning round.

Tips & Tricks: Noodling Around With Dysfunctional Relationships

Andrew Drinkwater (Plaid Analytics, CIRPA)

Relationships don't always work out quite as you'd like them to. Join Andrew Drinkwater as he noodles around with some dysfunctional Tableau relationship problems, and shows you how to use your noodle to fix those relationships.

Engage and Interact: Using Tableau to Create an Interactive Online Factbook

Christy Simpson (TTUHSC)

Online factbooks are a great way to provide transparent and regular communication with stakeholders on how an institution measures up to standards, no matter where those stakeholders reside. However, many of those factbooks are a bit flat and are only a birds-eye view.

In 2020, the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Nursing set out to take a flat report and make it more interactive for a variety of end users. Christy will share how the TTUHSC team used Tableau and Tableau Public to create a multi-tab one-stop-shop workbook that contains something for everyone.

Wrap-up and Chat

We'll close out the meeting with info about our next HETUG meeting, and then open up breakout rooms to chat!
