The most effective data visualizations are the ones that clearly communicate their findings. A key part of this communication is formatting. In this 10-video course, learners discover how Tableau Desktop provides a wide range of formatting tools that can be used to change a view's style, and ultimately increase its interpretability. Begin by learning how to use the formatting tools in Tableau Desktop to control formatting at a workbook level, and then use them to customize formatting options in worksheets, dashboards, stories, and individual objects. You can also use the tools to customize the appearance of tables and graphic lines. Discover how to add reference bands to continuous axes in a view; create distribution bands to add reference distributions with two or more values; and examine how to create bullet graphs. You will then learn how to add box plots to continuous axes in a view; use nested table calculations in a view, and explore the process of creating clusters with sample data. Finally, take a look at working with forecasts and prediction intervals.
