    Story Tiles?

    Paul Smith

      I'm new to Tableau and my supervisor is very excited about this dashboard:  http://www.wmdashboard.org/dashboard.  Is this layout constructed as a story or is this a custom script of some sort?  Not looking for someone to talk me through the creation of this layout, just point me in the right direction.  Thanks!

          Paul,

           

          If you download the Tableau workbook and look into how it's built, you can see that the landing page (those multi-colored tiles with the numbers on them) are actually images that someone has made outside of Tableau and brought in as custom shapes. The dashboard developer then uses action filters so that when a user clicks on a given tile, he/she is taken to another dashboard that provides more information.

           

          Best wishes,

          Doug
