    Employee Heat Map from Start Time and Duration

    Zachary Koch

      Hello World,

      I have data from an employee scheduling program that includes name, date, start time, end time, and duration.  I would like to use this to show cumulative staffing levels in a heat map.  I'm relatively new to Tableau but having troubles with a good solution.  Anyone have any thoughts?


      Scheduling Data (example):

      *Note some shifts start on one day, but continue to the following day.

      Agent Name

      Start Time
      End Time
