What is the Show me More Tableau dashboard extension

The Show me More Tableau Extension is an extension that enables you to make new complex graph types in Tableau in a few clicks. It is a very user friendly configurable extension that helps you drag and drop new graph types on your dashboard, provided you have a correct datasheet with the proper dimensions and measures.

Show Me More Extension documentation and tutorials

Every visualization needs data

If you want to create visualizations you need data ūüôā The Show me More dashboard extension for Tableau uses data from a sheet to create the beautiful graphs like Sankey Diagram, Radar Chart, Sunburst, Organization diagram etc. To acces the data it has to be available on the dashboard. You can use existing sheets or create a specific data sheet for your visualization.

Create a datasheet

Some graph types need one dimension, some need more diemensions, some need at least two measures some only one. The requirements for every graph type in the Show Me More extension are present in the config screen and you are only able to select the graph types that suit your datasheet’s content.

Create a datasheet like any other Tableau sheet. Drag and drop the dimensions and measures you need for your specific graph type. If you are going to hide the sheet in your dashboard then dont bothe about layout and formatting.

Place the datasheet in your dashboard

Now select (or create) the dashboard in which you want to display your show me more visualization. Place the datasheet on your dashboard by dragging and dropping it to the container you want.

Hide the datasheet in your dashboard

If you want to hide the datasheet in your dashboard, make the container of the datasheet floating and resize it to 1×1 pixel on the 0,0 (x,y) position in your dashboard.

Show Me More – Sankey Diagram

The Sankey Diagram needs at least 2 dimensions and 1 measure. These dimensions and measure have to be available in a datasheet on your dashboard before the Sankey Diagram will show. How to add (and hide) a datasheet to your dashboard is explained in the subject above.

The video shows the creating of a Sankey diagram based on 3 dimensions |and 1 measure from the default Superstore workbook. The Free version of the Show me More extension allows you to use only two dimensions in a Sankey diagram.
