In honor of Tableau 10.5 CHAR() function finally supporting extended Unicode Characters (don’t know why this wasn’t in the feature release…..), I decided to have some more fun with text.
- Create 1 sheet with a Small Multiple of 20X5 Grids for each Sub-Category in Office Supplies
- The percent of Total segment starts from the Bottom Right.
- The Sub-Category name needs to be above the Grid, with the Percent of Total
- Dashboard is 800X800
- YOU CAN ONLY USE THE TEXT MARK. NO BLENDING, NO SQUARES, JUST TEXT.
*If you get stuck, there is a blog post floating around on Andy’s blog. He let me do a guest way before I was a Zen, or anyone really knew me.
This week utilizes the superstore dataset. You can get it here at Data.World

This was nice – not too difficult
Here’s my try – with full automatic rescaling grid 😉
Those damned column e row indexes – it took me a bit to get it right
Not sure if anyone else had this issue, but the published board did not show the grids. Looked fine on desktop, but only showed lines online. Got around this by shrinking things down. Annoying but functional? https://public.tableau.com/app/profile/w4768/viz/WOW2018Week11-SmallMultipleGrid/WOW2018W11
