The IT team of WWF International is responsible for running projects, partnerships, and global financials. They have been using Tableau for at least seven years. Read how Tableau helps WWF bring conservation to life through data here. They are responsible for setting up a network that allows their thousands of users worldwide to access Tableau.
One of the international users who takes care of global financial reports was looking for additional tools in Tableau to facilitate reporting. He was looking for a specific visualization type that was not readily available in Tableau. Through some research, the WWF team discovered ShowMeMore, particularly the Sankey Diagram.

Being such a big organization, WWF International often needs to explain to their partners some of their financial flows. Typically, funding comes from the government and goes to a national office, which then invests in one of the project offices. Sometimes, the flow doesn’t stop there but continues either to one of the other offices or to a third-party contractor. It is often difficult to describe how the flow works.
