Tableau Desktop Version 9.2
Joe- Tyler, can you change the size of/on? the marks_card?
Tyler- Sure, One, okay Two seconds.
Changing.the.size.of.many.marks. Very common task during executive/kpi reporting, multi sources, or just complexities that won't allow more of these "marks" on the same vizzy (or marks card, if you use the 1.0 "many marks" trick especially).
Having to do this across 4 marks cards, 4 times, is tricky for me to do on tableau desktop easily
Didn't find it in idea forum.
-- extent of workbook it's nice to be able to position filters/marks shelves & legends,etc.. so that sending screen shots for quick feedback, it's cleaned up, showing all relevant filters and coloring!
My usual workflow consists of:
Removing the side bar removes 1 variable of catching the perfect pixel.
1. ALT+N+A --- great macro to hide/show your side bar. Good for quick adhoc meetings where you don't have any time to dashboard. And need the flexibility of more screen real estate. (screen shot below)
<btw, i notice this comes in handy when presenting on older projecters, great one to remember. mucho flashy. would be nice to see this as a button on the main interface.>
step1-- remove side bar
2. Then position the marks card, against the left side, of the application window. (drag and drop)
3. Squeeze it down, in case you've resized any of the marks cards, even barely by accident, you will not get the perfect pixel 2 times.
This is challenging without coffee
Looks like this.
That concludes the first part, times how ever many visualizations you may have. Which I like to do in an assembly line style (helps me save time), do all of the visualizations 1st, then go and do the next set of steps.
1. Pick up nearest plastic card or business card around me.
2. Apply it to the screen.
4. Rinse repeat.
I tried the idea forum, wasn't able to find anything about it, did I miss it? Is there a method or blog post that could help w/ this workflow? Doing it on the fly adhoc in a meeting of executives will require a custom solution, right? autohotkey win, and a solution to support through product updates
Is there any available work around or idea forum to +1? If this doesn't get traction, I'll toss it into the ideas forum later in the week.
Transparency is easy comparatively.
1. double click
2. type numbers
And paste each out.
The clicks and time really stack up if there are multiple requests to change the size, or the dashboard changes sizes - that would require a re-work on everything.
It seems a function to "carry over" formatting, would be great, for marks.
