    How do I create a heat map with conditional formatting?

    Kate Abercrombie

      Hi -


      I am trying to create a heat map in Tableau. I successfully created one, but I would like to apply ranges to the values. For example, I have data that ranges from 1 - 5. I would like to create a heat map that says if the value is between 1 and 2, the color should be green. If the value is between 2 and 4, the color should be yellow. If between 4 and 5, the color should be red. Do I need to create calculated fields for all of these? If so, can anyone help explain the formulas to me? Thank yoU!
