This was all about the forecasting features of Tableau. For which we believe is one of the most underestimated features of Tableau.

Because it is great and there a plenty of use cases for it.

There are two questions we keep hearing from our customers about the forecasting features of Tableau:

  • Does it work with my data?
  • And if yes – how can I fully utilise it?

The answers are given in this episode.

First a very simple method for checking whether the Tableau forecasting features work with a particular data set is presented. Along with some background information on exponential smoothing – being the principle behind the Tableau forecasting.

Also shown was how to check and increase the quality of the forecast.

And – in this episode it finally came out why the We Love Analytics team call Tableau a ‚he‘ and not an ‚it‘! You would never guess … 🙂
