Hi everyone, I was wondering if it would be possible to recreate in Tableau a chart like the one from Google Analytcs that you can see below:
Essentialy, this chart has the following features:
- you can manually select any period you want (start and end date)
- there's a quick menu with the most common used time intervals (last week, last 30 days, this year, etc.)
- if you want, you can compare the current results with another period (tipically, with a previous date)
- like before, you can manually select any date; besides, you can compare your selected period with the previous period or with previous year (same period)
I'll try to explain better the last point, wich I think could be the most difficult to achieve. Let's say that I have selected the period from 2 september to 13 september.
With the quick menu, I would be able to easily compare this period with the previous period (21 august - 1 september). Or, with another click, I could compare my selected period with previous year (2 september 2015 - 13 september 2015). I know that I could always manually select the start and end date for the comparison, but it's so much easier to just press a button and compare with the same period.
In the end, is it possible to do something like that?
I've been playing with parameters and I'm able to select and compare two different custom periods, but is there a way to create a quick menu like the one I've described in my post?
