    Stuck building a line chart with start and end date fields

    Dan Russell

      Hello, discovered Tableau this week and it's very exciting to play with this tool. The first viz we're trying to build can be viewed in a rough form here - Profile .


      The data comprises cruise vacations, which have a departure date (start date), return date (end date) and average daily price among other things. The current viz plots the date calendar on the x-axis and price on the y-axis, using a circle graph located at the departure date only. However instead of a circle graph we wish to use a line chart, with individual horizontal lines that join the departure date and return date of each cruise. The effect would be to indicate the duration of the cruise and make it easier to click. So far we haven't figured out how to do so, any ideas here would be much appreciated.
