So in other words:
Sao Paulo you say? I see this as a way that I can give more than I take from the Tableau community. Yes, this is what I choose to do with my vacation time it's a bit of a sickness and no, Tableau doesn't pay me to do this. Anyway, as I was on the plane, I thought it would be great to kick off the week with a new tip.
Today, I'm writing about combining KPIs and sparklines in a single view. It's very common for business users to want to see KPIs and trends in the same view. These give them a sense for the overall direction of their product and also highlight the most meaningful numbers to them.
I often see people create these as separate worksheets in Tableau, but with this post, I'm going to show you how to combine them into a single view. Combining them into a single view provides a couple of benefits: Tableau only needs to render a single sheet, so until parallel processing comes out in v9, you'll see a performance benefit.
If you have a hierarchy, then expanding the hierarchy will keep the table and the sparklines together. Here's the final solution, with details on how to create this view below. Learn About Tableau Here's how I created this single worksheet view. Create calculated fields to determine which dates are in the most recent week and which dates are in the prior week.
Note that the table calculations compute along Date. Create calculated fields to get the volume for the latest week and prior week. Create calculated fields for the week over week change and percent change.
This will make them appear as columns of data. Reorder these discrete measures as you see fit.
I like to include an indicator on the end of my sparklines see this blog post. I do this by creating a calculated field to get the value for the latest date and then add it as the secondary axis. Create a calculated field to filter to the last 30 days, add it to the filters shelf and choose True.
Clean up and formatting. I removed the gridlines, removed the lines for the column divider pane, hid the header for Volume, changed the worksheet font size, right justified the discrete measures on the Rows shelf, narrowed the width of the sparklines, made the sparklines thinner, made the headers bold, and bottom aligned the headers.

I created a dummy header for my sparklines that shows the "as of date" and added it to the Columns shelf. I created a parameter to let the user decide what they want to sort by.
Creating a parameter requires a few steps of its own: I add the negative for a sort descending effect. This doesn't take very long once you do it a time or two. Give it a shot!
