Buttoning Up Your Navigation + Acti-FLYing Your Filters

Anna Kourouniotis (Duke)

Anna is going to share how Don't Pass on the Grub!, her recent Tableau Public Viz of the Day, came to be. She'll also show us some of the cool interactivity tricks she incorporated into the viz.

  • First, she'll show us how to help users navigate between tabs using navigation buttons. Wayfinding in Tableau has never been so delicious!
  • Next she'll introduce us to the power of dashboard actions by demonstrating how to set up a filter action. Actions can help make your dashboards pretty fly.

Wrap-up and Chat

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