  • Connect, shape and prepare data for the Tableau workspace
  • Describe and demonstrate key concepts, including aggregation and level-of-detail, addressing and partitioning, and when to use continuous versus discrete dates.
  • Create and format basic and combination charts
  • Assemble dashboards with basic interactivity using filters and actions.
