Tableau Survey Analytics Reshaping Data .
Visualizing survey data in Tableau was one of the hardest task I tackled being a Tableau consultant. It was so hard I ended up creating my own survey software and company around visualizing survey data in Tableau. If anyone has down this before then you know how the data comes out of survey software is useless in Tableau.
The first step in the right direction is to reshape the data so that all the questions and answers are in 2 separate rows. Once you do this you can do a quick filter to choose which question will be presented one at a time.
Here is a quick video to show how it’s done, first download the Tableau excel plugin http://kbcdn.tableausoftware.com/data/tableau_data_tool.zip
