Description: Dynamic Axis Labels/Formatting/Tooltips for Measure Selector
Tableau Version: 8.2
Original Author: Simon Runc
I've seen quite a few questions, on the forum, on using a measure selector (controlled via a parameter) and having the Chart Axis Labels, Chart Axis Formatting, and Tool Tip formatting to reflect the selected measure. So I thought I’d put together a workbook using all the tricks required to get that final bit of polish to a Viz.
I’ve worked up the example from Superstore data, and want the ability to choose which measure (between Sales £, Quantity, Profit £, and Profit Margin %) on a line chart. I’ve built this in Tableau 8.2 (as none of the tricks here require T9 improved functionality)
Please find attached the final workbook, and a .doc file with step by step instructions on how it was done.
