Step line charts have been introduced with Tableau’s 2018.1 release and it’s really hard to remember that there was a time before, where it needed a little hack to create such a step line, like for example described in this post by Rody Zakovich. Continue reading “Step Area Charts in Tableau”
Today my students and I practiced a waterfall chart – a chart type you just have to know when you want become an accountant 🙂
While practicing I brought up the idea of a connected waterfall chart, something I did for the first time in a #makeovermonday some weeks ago (click for the interactive version on Tableau Public). Continue reading “Connected Waterfall Charts”
This week I had a lot of fun recreating Lorna Eden’s #WorkoutWednesday2019 challenge. One key element was to implement a custom sort control (click to play with the interactive version on Tableau Public): Continue reading “Custom Sort Control in Tableau”

Last week at work I (Klaus) puzzled my head over an interesting question. I was looking at production orders and production dates and had to calculate differences between production dates:
- If a production order has consecutive production days (the datediff between the days is 1) then the machine only has to be equipped once.
- If the datediff between two production days is >1, the machine has to be equipped on each production date.
The Table Calculation-Approach
When I was reading a news website earlier today I had this nice user experience when I was hovering this chart:
At #TC18, right before #IronViz, I had a nice conversation with Zen Master Ann Jackson about table calculations in Tableau that can be summarized like this:
Do you want to learn more about “everything is a scatterplot” and the “multiple-layer-technique”?

For this week’s #makeovermonday challenge I created this visualization combining a hex map and a panel chart (click to play with the interactive version on Tableau Public):
Ludovic Tavernier and I have spent quite some time on our collaboration project about the rise of tennis legend Boris Becker. One key element of our viz is something that we have called ‘bump trees‘, a two-layer chart that is combining (horizontal) tournament trees in the first layer with (vertical) bump lines to connect the different tournament trees of a player in the second layer (click the image to play with the interactive version and to read our entire data essay on Tableau Public).
