OVERVIEW

Using Tableau is one of the most requested reporting skills in the workplace; an essential business tool.

This course progresses steadily, allowing you to follow along on your computer and thoroughly understand each part before moving on. On completion, you will be able to create vizzes, dashboards, and stories of your own, as well as being able to overcome common problems.

The course is presented with a combination of Tableau 2018 to 2024, but is also mostly compatible with Tableau 9 and Tableau 10.

.

WHO IS THE COURSE FOR?

No prior knowledge of Tableau or other reporting tools is required.

This course is also suitable for those who have used Tableau before, but have never designed a report, and those with experience of other reporting tools such as Microsoft Access, SSRS and Yellowfin who want to add to their skillset.

Although this course covers some more advanced topics, it is probably not right for you if you have already used Tableau to create reports.
