Another option aside from Naveen's Index solution (I was in the midst of writing up a flavor of that idea too ) is to just put subcategory on the Text shelf so each tile is labeled, have nothing on rows or columns, and fit the viz to entire view on the dashboard. Then the number of items in each row will change depending on how you fit it to your dashboard.
I usually call this kind of viz a heat map or KPI tiles, but I do like "checkerboard"!
Just responding to clarify that these are called trellis or tile charts.
Thanks Naveen and Jen! (And Peter for the clarification of naming convention).
I actually went with a middle of the road between Naveen and Jen.
@ Naveen, the column/rows calculations appear to need to be exact to the # of options roughly? Sometimes it does weird things.
An example is I used your workbook and used Segments which only has 3 options. I set the columns modulus to 2, and the rows modulus to 2. I get the following? (Was expecting 3 boxes, but got 2)
It sets Consumer and Home office to 0,0?
However I also started to not enjoy what the min's were doing. In the first screenshot it creates a ton of white space?
Luckily for me in my real world example I have 15 objects so I just removed the MIN's and got the following:
This is what I wanted (with some more metrics that will be added to labels)
Thanks again all for the support!
