I am a co-organiser of the Northwest Tableau User Group along with Ella Worsdale and Lorna Eden.  The group met in Manchester’s City Labs on 2nd May 2018.  We presented a fun and interactive session called ‘Chart Chooser‘, where we asked participants to name a chart type. We then had a brief discussions of the pros and cons of each chart type using Slido.com for interactive audience voting using smart phones.  All charts were created using Tableau’s Superstore dataset.

Please have a go yourself to name each chart type, then click through to see if you are right and to reveal it’s advantages and disadvantages.
