  • Data Decision Making: Reporting, Dashboarding and Beyond

    Online event

    Reporting, Dashboarding and Beyond -
    Using personas to choose the right platform for your requirements

    One common conundrum we work with clients to resolve is how to balance the requirements of the business users who want data, with the best tool for the job. Persona analysis enables new and established data analytics departments to evaluate the real needs of their users, without compromising by focusing on a particular tool first.

    Want to learn how to harness the power of your data, but are short on time? If you’re new to Tableau and Alteryx then our speedy 2-hour hands-on sessions are for you (1.5 hour training, and up to 30 mins at the end for questions!).

    We are running weekly introductory sessions where we will help you get to grips with data in Tableau Desktop, Tableau Prep, Tableau Server and Web Edit, and Alteryx Designer. These sessions will run concurrently, so come along to a different session each week to supercharge your data skills!

    Our sessions are hands-on, so make sure you are ready-to-go by downloading a copy of the software for the session on your laptop (you can download trial versions of Tableau Desktop, Tableau Prep and Alteryx Designer. We will show you our Demo Tableau Server through the browser for our Server and Web Edit, and Explorer Licence trainings).

    Session Overviews

    > Tableau Desktop Essentials (Beginner) - This session will show you an overview of Tableau Desktop’s capabilities – from how you can connect to data and easily create different charts, to tables and dashboards.

    > Tableau Working with Dates (Intermediate) - Working with dates in Tableau can dive you nuts! In this session we give you a grounding in how Tableau handles dates (eg ‘the difference between discrete vs continuous dates’; ‘what are date parts’?). We then take working with dates one step further by looking at common date calculations like year over year comparisons, and rolling dates.

    > Tableau Working with Maps (Advanced) - In this session you will get an overview of map features in Tableau. This includes bringing in and working with spatial data, understanding the default geography inside of Tableau and exploring spatial calculations and map layers.

    > Alteryx Macros (Advanced) - If you need to run the same analytical process over and over then this session is for you. We will show you how to build a Macro in Alteryx, and also what are some different ways you can insert Macros into your existing processes.

    --------------------------------------------

    One of the features of the Data School training program (https://www.thedataschool.co.uk/) is getting to teach others. We've decided that we should teach YOU, the public, instead of each other. Join us virtually for a day of Tableau training. We'll run 4x 90 minute training sessions - you can join for the whole day, or just sessions that interest you.

    The topics we will cover are (we will confirm the specific session titles and descriptions a little closer to the event:

    Agenda

    > 9:00 - 9:15 | Introductions

    > 9:15 - 10:45 | Why are some fields Blue and other Green?
    Do you want to be able to create different chart types quickly ? To get there, one of the most fundamental aspects to learn about Tableau is the difference between blue and green fields. In this session, we will explain what blue and green mean and how both shape our view.

    > 11:00 - 12:30 | Visual Design Best Practices
    Understanding how to effectively communicate data is essential in helping your audience gain a deeper insight. This session will outline basic best practices for visual design when building a dashboard/visualisation.
