Tableau Style Guides

Let’s face it: the same problem is possible with Tableau as it was with Microsoft Excel. Your analysts and data scientists are not graphic designers. They’re not creative data visualizers, either. Then why expect them to design your company’s reports beautifully, simply, with a common user experience that is intuitively appreciated by your broad group of stakeholders? Get them a Tableau Style Guide designed with the help of your brand team and let that guide their visual aesthetic and usability ideas. A Tableau Style Guide lets them concentrate on what they do best: data analysis and insight generation.
