Create a Tableau Table of Contents (and make it Dynamic too!)


When COVID struck, Unemployment claims skyrocketed.  In order to get a better handle on the unemployment situations, my company asked me to build an Unemployment Dashboard.  When finished, it was 18 dashboards.  I personally thought the best way to allow it to be navigated was via a clickable table of contents.  The table of contents looked like the following.  To navigate to a dashboard, you simply clicked on the on the image.  

The community reacted very positively toward this dashboard, it currently has 130 favorites, and even Tableau shared it on Twitter and LinkedIn.  But the most positive responses were in relation to the table of contents.  Because of that, I figured I should share how I did it.  

In this video, I'll show you how to create a table of contents like I did in my Unemployment viz and I even show you how to make the charts in the table of contents completely dynamic - they'll update with your data.  Check out the video below.  

Thanks for reading and watching!
