Tableau Desktop Guide
Tableau Desktop is a powerful program to create visualizations, live dashboards, and more all in a user-friendly and modern package. While there is a learning curve, most of the base functionality can be easily learned without and prior experience with visualization softwares. Using Tableau Desktop is usually done under the assumption that data is properly cleaned and ready to be visualized. While there is a lite version of the manipulation tools Tableau Prep has, these are best used sparingly and entering clean prepped data. When you are visualizing the client's data, make sure you have a clear understanding of what your end goal is, and what steps you are using to get there. Using the wrong type of average, or choosing the wrong graph can misrepresent the data, which is always a serious mistake. When in doubt, ask or write down your logic.
