    Displaying "No Data" in Dashboard

    Matthew Hefferon

      Hello, Tableau community!


      I attached a sample workbook and looking for some ideas.


      I really like the technique to show a message or icon if there is "No Data" in a dashboard (I find this much more informative than a blank dashboard). Here is a dashboard with data available:

      Here the user has filtered out the date so instead of a blank dashboard they get a message:

      The issue with this approach, when you don't have enough data to cover the text you see the warning message:

      Has data just not enough to cover text.png

      Would love feedback, ideas or some other solutions you have implemented. All ideas are welcome.


      Thanks in advance!
