Supported Narrative Types

Follow

This guide will explore the story types supported by Narratives for Tableau. We will show examples of visualizations that match the scenarios described here.

Continuous Analysis

Narratives for Tableau has support for the following scenarios of continuous analysis:

  • Single dimension with between one and 10 measures
  • Two dimensions and one measure

The below is an example of a single dimension-single measure line chart. In this case, sales by month

The below is an example of a single-dimension and multiple-measure line chart. Here we have sales and several other metrics by month.

The below is an example of a line chart with two dimensions and one measure. In this case we are looking at sales by month broken down by region.

 

Discrete Analysis

Narratives for Tableau has support for the following scenarios of discrete analysis:

  • Single dimension with between one and 10 measures
  • Two dimensions and one measure

The example below is a single dimension and single measure bar chart. 

The example below is a single dimension bar chart with two measures

The example below is a bar chart with two dimensions and a single measure

Percent of Whole Analysis

Narratives for Tableau has support for the following scenarios of percent of whole analysis:

  • Single dimension and single measure

The below is an example of a single dimension/single measure pie chart

Scatterplot Analysis

Narratives for Tableau has support for the following scenarios of scatterplot analysis

  • Single dimension and either two or three measures

The example below is a scatterplot with two measures. For narrative generation, the first measure when you select measures will be treated as the independent variable and the second will be the dependent variable.

The example below is a scatterplot with three measures. For narrative generation, when you set up your measures, the first would be the 'x', the second would be the 'y' and the third would be the 'z'. In the example below, days to ship would be the 'z'.
