A picture is worth a thousand words, why not use more images in your dashboard? Have you ever tried to use product or colleague images instead of names as a filter in your Tableau Dashboards? Tableau offers url actions, background images and shapes to use pictures in your dashboard. It requires a lot of work to get your images all prepped up to be used in your dashboards the standard way and still it remains a static or low res exercise that thickens up the size of your workbook.
The “PictureThis” Tableau extension helps you create dynamic image tables that can be used as a filter in your dashboard. Use Image url’s from your dataset that automatically create a responsive image table. The images will act as a filter on another target sheet in your dashboard. Images are not stored in your dashboard, they will dynamically be lined up in an image table based on your data and can be used as a filter!
