    If you are running into problems building the Sankey Diagram please check the following tip:

    1. Members from the used dimensions can’t be the same. This will create an endless loop and crashes the Sankey Diagram.
    you can solve this by adding a prefix in front of your dimension. For example: ‘from’ + [from dimension] OR ‘to’ + [to dimension]

    2. Dimensions can’t have empty values. The Sankey Diagram will filter this.

    3. Measure can’t be 0 or below 0. 

    Example how to built a Show me More visual:

    Cheers,

    Merlijn.

    Could you please post a sample of how data should be structured?
    I’m trying to build the sankey, and the extension wont let me select the visualization type.
    Perhaps it has to do with the way that I’m building the database.
    Thanks !

    Hi Ls,

    Did you use a measure in your sheet? We have a example right here:

    Hello,

    Same problem

    I put Category, Segment, Region in a crosstable with Sales inside (a measure). I receive the same feedback “1 More Measure”. I added the Profit as Color, or text too….same issue

    Thank you for the feedback Kevin,

    We will update the extension in a few hours, the extension is currently only supporting English Tableau.
    We will update it so it will also be compatible with other languages like spanish.

    Here it’s online: https://public.tableau.com/profile/leonardo.sampieri#!/vizhome/sankeytestA/Dashboard3
    We’ll keep tweaking (if we can) font heights and other details.
    Yes, of course. We’ll consider Premium versions. In fact, one of our services is mainly based on a Sankey diagram.
    The next step (one of many) would be the possibility of swaping the sankey columns, right?. 😉

    Swapping sounds great, you mean changing the order of the dimensions in configure?

    I’m sharing the link I posted before, and my team can’t see the sankey diagram online.
    Screenshot: https://snag.gy/bLZHoq.jpg
    The app keeps loading and finally crashes.
    It’s strange, I have no problems seeing it in my browser (standard browing), but in private mode it’s not working.
    Thanks !

    Yap !,
    Of course, the sankey should update by itself, and I imagine it being manipulated by the final user of the dashboard, not the designer/analyts (me)
    Perhaps, if not by drag and drop, what I guess must be really difficult, it could be done with a menu.
