Give your audience the freedom to adapt your data in new ways in interactive dashboards that answer immediate questions and uncovers new insights. Data visualization tools can help you communicate better both internally and with your partners.

Tableau can help you produce more intuitive data visualizations, and we can show you how. In this course, you will build your skills in making appropriate graphics, but you will also incorporate complex calculations in ways that improve insights, make charts more relevant, and create the most impactful dashboard graphics.
