Week 3: Can you visualise time in a unique way?


This week, I wanted to take a look at how people could visualise time in a unique way. My idea around this is planning. Looking at time in this manner allows people to look at workload / order load etc and see where was most and least popular, which will allow planning for the workforce or other elements.


  • 1200 x 800 dashboard size
  • Join Superstore Sales to Order times
  • Ability to switch between day numbers and weekdays
  • Small Multiple by month. No hard coding of months or table calcs
  • Filter to latest year
  • Show the range of Hours that orders were placed
  • Show the number of orders placed on a particular hour
  • Match Tooltips and Formating 


This week uses the superstore dataset for Tableau 2019.4. You can get it here at data.world. 

There is a secondary data set which you are required to join to. You can get it here at data.world


When you publish your solution on Tableau Public make sure to take the time and include a link to the original inspiration.  Also include the hashtag #WOW2020 in your description to make it searchable!


After you finish your workout, share on Twitter using the hashtag #WOW2020 and tag @AnnUJackson@LukeStanke@lorna_eden, and @HipsterVizNinja
