Summary

In this chapter, we learned the Tableau Public user interface, from the welcome screen to the worksheet and dashboard tab views. We discussed the concepts of shelves and cards, walked through an example of how the Marks card affects a data visualization, and had a look at how to create a dashboard from the various worksheets created in a Tableau Public workbook. Lastly, we discussed the Show Me tool and how it can aid you in choosing appropriate data visualization types for your data.

In the next chapter, we will discuss the various chart types that you can create in Tableau Public and what some of the best practices and uses are for the chart types.
