Data are essential to what you want to build in Tableau Desktop, so this 11-video course will help you get the most out of it by using the Data pane and everything that it offers. Begin by finding and managing fields, and then sorting and grouping fields in the Data pane. This leads learners into learning how to work with dimensions and measures, and discrete and continuous data; how to use marks and controlling how dimensions and measures are used in a view; and how to set up default aggregation for a measure and default number format for data and number fields. Examine how to create, edit, and remove dynamic and fixed sets; configure, manipulate; and combine sets in a view, and create and use bins, all in Tableau Desktop. Delve into creating hierarchies from fields to enable quick drill-down between levels, and assigning geographic roles to fields in order to use the roles to create a map view. To conclude the course, discover how to create fields and use them in Tableau view.
