Tableau Desktop II (Intermediate Tableau Desktop)

Explore Next Level Tableau Skills to Move from Simple to Complex Visualizations and Create Advanced Interactive Dashboards



2 Days

Course Overview

Geared for experienced Tableau, Tableau Desktop II / Intermediate Tableau Desktop is a two-day, lab intensive hands-on course that provides participants with the intermediate and beyond level skills required to develop complex visualizations, and to combine them in more advanced-level interactive dashboards.  Although the base list of topics is similar to the Tableau Desktop course, the Intermediate course will dive deeper into the advanced skills within each topic and visualization to provide you with the skills required for advanced level work. This course is not for beginners or those new to Tableau.

NOTE: The Tableau Training Series is independent-format training that can be tuned and adjusted to best meet your needs. Our materials are flexible, comprehensive, and are always instructed by a senior instructor with a deep understanding of Tableau and its most current features, benefits and functionality in a wide array of uses.

Course Objectives

This skills-focused course combines expert lecture, real-world demonstrations and group discussions with machine-based practical labs and exercises.  Working in a hands-on learning environment led by our expert facilitator, students will:

  • Use next-level features within the Tableau interface / paradigm to effectively create powerful, advanced level visualizations
  • Create advanced calculations including string manipulation, basic arithmetic calculations, custom aggregations and ratios, date math, logic statements and quick table calculations
  • Use groups, bins, hierarchies, sorts, sets, and filters to create focused, effective and advanced -level visualizations
  • Use Measure Name and Measure Value fields to create visualizations with multiple measures and dimensions.
  • Share visualizations with others, combining visualizations into Interactive Dashboards and publish them to the web.
  • Represent data using the more following visualization types (emphasizing advanced skill areas only):
    • Cross tabs; Heat maps; Distribution charts; Tree maps; Pie charts and bar charts; Dual axis and combo charts with different mark types; Box plots; Highlight tables; Scatter plots

Need different skills or topics?  If your team requires different topics or tools, additional skills or custom approach, this course may be further adjusted to accommodate.  We offer additional Tableau, reporting, data analytics, visualization and other related topics that may be blended with this course for a track that best suits your needs.
