I think I just flunked the quiz. How exactly does this work? If it's built in word, do you print it out and hand it out to people? Doesn't the number of pills you need (and their colors) depend on the question being asked? I'm sorry if I'm not getting it. Is the audience folks w/ desktop? If so, then could they do it in Tableau?
Thanks in advance for not scoffing too loudly at my questions
Oops! Sorry if my first post didn't make much sense.
Yes it is meant to be a print out... and your audience is whoever uses Desktop that doesn't understand how tableau generates layouts.
I typically write some options for dimensions and measures on each sheet, then everyone sits down together and looks at a viz on a projector and writes where they think each pill goes. Then you can keep it short and it can be a good source of competition.
This would be possible for them to do at their desk on Desktop, but you would need a data source or use sample data.
Although it is easy in tableau to guess what needs to be done and just drag things around. Viz Quiz is designed to help people know EXACTLY where pills go and what color they are (so the differences between dimension, discrete, continuous) and increase efficiency and understanding of tableau desktop.
There is another skill that can be learned from just looking at viz and that is *roughly* knowing how your underlying data is shaped. Formatting and calculated fields can throw this off a little bit, but just a thought.
