"The basic idea behind the visualization is to get from question to answer, or from data to insight, as quickly as possible."
Read on to learn about Peter's process for designing this dashboard. "As every eager and excited data visualization enthusiast, once I had the data I tried several flashier visuals including a hex map, rounded bars, and a jitter plot. It didn’t take me long, however, to realize not all these flashy objects delivered an immediate impact, improved user experience, or provided optimized workbook performance. As with all data visualization projects, testing a few visualization types was fun. But in the end, it became evident that simplicity goes a long way."
Peter further elaborates, "Following data viz best practice from the white paper ‘Designing Efficient Workbooks’ is the best guide there is, in my opinion. The best lessons from this whitepaper focus on understanding the overall order of operations, and how it affects workbook behavior. It also contains invaluable advice about how to optimize filters, reasons to consider avoiding quick filters, selecting the right chart types, how to avoid too many data points per sheet, as well as best practices to ensure dependable query performance."

Peter continues, "A few weeks later, I had a few draft versions ready to show and confirmed with the team I was on the right track. The basic idea behind the visualization is to get from question to answer, or from data to insight, as quickly as possible. I came up early with the tagline of '...you’re only X clicks away from finding Tableau talent' and this idea is behind the entire approach."
