Wouldn’t it be great if you could add some corporate backgrounds to your Tableau viz just like you do in powerpoint?
Well, you can and here’s how
Once you have created the Tableau Viz, just add an image to the dashboard, make it floating and add to the your dashboard and cover the entire space.
Finalize the layout of your dashboard, I like a lot of floating dashboards to give me more flexibility, keeping in mind where you want the background to show up
Add the image object to the dashboard
Final Dashboard options
A couple of things to keep in mind
- Make sure the background is an png file (in other words, allows for transparency)
- Good to use only backgrounds with footers or header, like this one
Personally, I wouldn’t want to use the one with droplets because it interferes with the interactivity. But, I want to get the point across about using transparent png files.
By the way, adding an image on top is also a neat trick to actually take interactivity away, if all you care about was providing a static dashboard.
