Once you have finished analyzing your data in Tableau Desktop, it is time to present your results and share your insights with the world. In this 11-video course, learners will discover how Tableau has a number of ways with which one can share findings; compiling sheets into dashboards or stories, and then implementing actions to better communicate one's information. To begin, explore how to add and remove objects from dashboards, and also how to use multiple views to filter other views in order to implement multi-master dashboards. Learn how to use URL actions to create links in vizzes [visualizations]; use e-mail actions to start new e-mail conversations from a viz, and create set actions in Tableau Desktop to make them available in Tableau Online and Tableau Server. Discover how to define advanced highlight actions; create stories and add story points in Tableau Desktop, and adjust the controls and layout in stories in Tableau Desktop. Explore how to use presentation mode; control your workbook performance, and finally, print and export vizzes.
