Create a Tiled Container "Selector"


The new version of Tableau (2021.2) brought us an awesome new feature, the ability to add a show/hide button to not only a floating container, but also a tiled container.  When you close a tiled container, the other tiled containers fill that space.  This opens us up to so many cool things and the datafam hasn't disappointed (as usual).  

When I was driving one day (and thinking about Tableau of course), I came up with the idea of creating a Tiled Container Selector, sort of a visual guide to which containers exist, which are open, which are closed, and which are available to be opened or closed.  I landed on something I thought was quite cool.  You can check out the example viz on my Tableau Public page and check out the animated gif below to see what it looks like.  

Okay, want to build one yourself?  It's super easy and this 8 minute video will walk you through all the steps.  Check it out and let me know what you think.

  1. Fantastic stuff! This really opens up entirely new UI/UX options.

    Now if only I could get my company to upgrade our Server past 2020.3 :)

  2. This is awesome! I need to find a use case or improve existing dashboards. I try to read some Flerlage Twins every day to increase my knowledge base!
