Create a field called "OrderInNewsfeed" and assign a number value to each of the things that will appear in the newsfeed. Drag this field to the first position on the Rows shelf and then hide it by right clicking the pill and unchecking "show header". This will determine the order but it will not show up on the sheet.
Could you please attach sample data as excel or as packaged workbook(**.twbx ) is always the best,
Hi Tim, thanks so much for your response!
Does this account for the fact that I am using symbols in as a column maker? The symbols I am using are custom shapes that I created in my Tableau repository and assigned them to a number using a calculated field.
Let me know what you think, and thanks again!
Hi Shinichiro, thank you for your response as well!
I actually do not have the data available to me yet that we will be using. I have simply started creating this using made up data that I compiled in excel. Do you have insight given that I don't have the data readily available? Please let me know
It should not be an issue. The field will have a different name and if you put it first and hide it, there will be no issue. You can also name them alphabetically.
The solution is really based on data structure.
Without data, or with data we prepare, all the efforts might probably be in vain.
Unfortunately I do not have the actual data we will be using for this just yet. I have simply been using a very small set of sample data that I made up to try and put the wireframes into action. It is also difficult at this point to say what the actual data will look like. In any case, I have created and attached some tables in tableau with this dummy data. Please let me know what you think.
In the meantime, in my table on page 1, is there a way to add a color scale to the "client impact score" numbers without overriding the shapes I've assigned?
Again, your help is greatly appreciated!
