First you have to download the custom shapes(google it) and place them in My tableau repository-->Shapes folder in .png format.
As per the blog prepare calculated fields and place them on the shape label.
Double click the shape label and select the desired shapes you want to display

I'm not sure if you're still working through this question, but I tried it out and ran into similar issues. I ultimately found that there are two settings you need to have in your view to make this work:
- Under the "Analysis" menu you need to turn off "Aggregate Measures".
- Under the "Analysis" menu you also have to make sure that "Stack Marks" is set to "off".
In the instructions in the blog post and in the referenced workbook will get you everything else you need, just make sure you have corrected these two settings.
Best of luck and let me know if this worked for you,
Thanks Wesley! I had followed the blog but wasn't getting the effect. Turning off Aggregate Measures did the trick.
I am trying to do the same thing. My data also has regions similar to what "Bora Beran" has done. I see that the totals are getting summed up for regions.
North end at 5000 ; South begins art 6000 ( diving them by 1000 )
I am not able to see the complete bar for each region like the initial image Nazik has posted. Can you suggest a solution for this?
Thank you for the post. I am having trouble recreating a similar visualization. I can get the shapes to show up on the graph, but the actual measures make no sense. Additionally, I cannot get the tooltip to display the correct aggregate sum. I have followed all the steps and am very confused. I have also unticked aggregate measuresand stack marks. Please any help/guidance would be much appreciated!
