Are mobile readers of your news site becoming more and more common? If your news organization is like others we’ve worked with, the percent of readers using phones and tablets to read your content is well over half of the overall number, and growing fast. Creating data visualizations for these small form-factors is very challenging. Learn how to use Tableau to create sheets and dashboards that work great, even on phones and tablets. 

•Design considerations, including layout and formatting
•Dashboard sizing for a range of screen widths
•Interactivity – filtering and tooltips
•Options to embed visualizations to respond to reader device

Some experience with Tableau Public is recommended. Taking one of the earlier Tableau sessions should suffice. Laptops will be provided. This is a free training, however you must be registered for the CAR Conference to attend this class. Limited seats are available. There may be a few seats available on-site.
