Yes something like this, but using cascading tiled object alter the size of the initial element making my graph tinier.
This is not good since this graph is already pretty small because it need to fit in a specific place in the In-Desing layout.
I know we might alter graph after pdf export. But since my colleague will have to update more than ten graphs like that for our monthly newsletter... I think she would highly appreciate if I can spare her this repetitive task each month.
Yeah I noticed that also. So just edit your dashboard Title.
A solution might be to add a separate text object to do the trick.
However this prevent me from inserting the start/end date of the graph in the title as I did it the first place.
And this is also quite important because my goal is to set up a twbx including all required graphs and data for the newsletter. But time-frame might not be the same for every dataset in the workbook.
So this would required an almost equal time wasting and less error proof process as one should manually update time-frame in each title each month.
Here is a new version of the twbx to illustrate the two approach.
It' very frustrating because in terms of calculation and processing I get exactly what I want... But in the last rendering phase I'm stuck because of this grey line coming from nowhere and which seem absolutely not customizable.

Just look those instructions that I posted up there. It's the easiest way.
First thank you very much Ville because you did put me on the good track, but i didn't get it at first.
Secondly I feel quite dumb now that I've found how to perform this.
But I will use complexity of tableau formating as an excuse.
Thirdly here is the recipe if someone is as dumb as me...
How to put a fully colored background on a floating dashboard in 3 steps
- For each worksheet on the dashboard select it then set a default shading for the worksheet
- For each worksheet on the dashboard select it then set a default shading for the title
- On the dashboard set a default shading by selecting one of the only formating option not present in the format menu! (this is where I got lost until I see this actually exist thanks to Ville)
Hope my tutorial don't look to dumb. But as I was more used to call formating option from mouse right-click, this was quite a quest to find this customization option. Because of course while you can use right-click to achieve step 1 & 2, I haven't found any way to achieve step 3 without calling the formatting panel from the dashboard menu.
Have a nice day everyone!
Nice to know that you got it. Sometimes it is hard to remember that there is also that dashboard menu for formatting, when you are trying to give easy instructions.
Marin, thanks for posting the how-to! Great work, I wish more people would do this. Ville, thanks for showing a how-to in your help.
Great work folks!! I like this.
