    Creating side-by-side box and whisker plots with multiple measures using the same scale

    Jonathan Seiden

      Hello,

       

      This is my first post, so please be gentle. I have searched for ~2 hours for the answer so think I have exhausted the existing resources. I am using Tableau Public 10.1.

       

      I am trying to do something that seems simple: make a series of side-by-side box-and-whisker plots with multiple measures that are all 0-100%. It's simple enough to create a vertical scatter like this using the measures as rows, and the measure names as columns:

      But when I click on the "box and whisker plot", it shreds this layout, and instead I get this:

      Is there any way to preserve the above side-by-side layout but still get the box and whiskers? It's like to compare the means and spreads of the different domains and this is hard to do when they are not next to each other.

       

      Thank you!
