Who Googles Dashboard templates? Awesome dashboards are coming out of Tableau Public each day.

As Freelance Tableau Consultants we are always looking for the best method of building amazing dashboards for customers like GoPro, Nielsen, Kroger, Etc.

Although sometimes I see some dated content because age comes before quality in ranking images and URLs.

The Awesome dashboard Hero

I love making awesome dashboards for clients. My favorite one was The Nielsen Company asking me on a call, “Did you make that in Tableau?” Haha! Yes, I did, thanks for the compliment. (shared below)

So, let’s jump in, we think the best dashboards come from floating visualizations in Tableau Desktop and clicking beyond the default format values. The most awesome dashboards can do a lot of data analysis without having to touch the software very much.

Clients like Kroger, The Nielsen Company, GoPro, etc. we have to stay on our toes and offer premium Tableau professional services. Tableau engagements I’m expected to tell them what they don’t know yet. I was the Tableau expert on optimization of images in Tableau all the way to optimizing the backend SQL.

If you haven’t tried to install it yet, I wanted to let you know that you can install Tableau Desktop for free right now!

We wanted to add to the collection of awesome dashboards! Sure we write about Tableau Logo and how to get it, but we also make awesome dashboards too.

The Nielsen Company was curious about the trip price analysis. So, we broke it down in excel, pasted in Tableau, and boom – they were more interested in 2 days onsite, easy win for their upper management team.

It’s a good idea for us to collectively push down these silly 3D charts as fast as possible – they are not as awesome anymore 1990’s!
