    RAG status tracking and comparison

    Liz Gent

      Hi, I have a number of projects mapped in my worksheet in a RAG status i.e. red, amber, green this is displayed numerically in the data source as 1, 2, 3.   I want to be able to show the RAG status of each project in colour terms - so assigning a colour to each number and each project.  But I also want to compare each month's RAG status to the previous months so I can see movement in status.  can anyone help me on how to do this as im new to Tableau and teaching myself. I would ideally like this as two graphics to go onto the one dashboard.

      Many thanks.  Liz

          Hello Liz!


          First off, welcome to the wonderful world of Tableau! There are plenty of amazing resources out there for learning Tableau. I would definitely not be afraid to check out any and all things available!


          Tableau has some great options in the Learning section of Tableau.com : Learning | Tableau Software


          There is also the phenomenal Think Data Thursday program hosted by Patrick Van Der Hyde and myself on Thursdays throughout the year. Stay up to date on #TDTs by following the Community space.


          + Think Data Thursday


          Also check out all the amazing past Think Data Thursday in our playlist found here: Think Data Thursday & Talk Data - YouTube


          I would also check out the Tableau Community Forums workbook library and wiki: Workbook & Calculation Library & TabWiki .


          There are some groups on Twitter that also do a great job of expanding knowledge with weekly challenges. Check out the hashtags #MakeOverMonday and #WorkoutWednesday.


          For this particular question and for future posts, I would suggest attaching a packaged workbook, this allows the Community to get a clear understanding of what is being encountered. This can lead to quicker assistance on the issue as well.

          Hope this helps!
