First, I’ve read the Tableau Knowledgebase article on building Radar Charts in Tableau Desktop. It took me all day and a lot of clicks to create my first, still incomplete, prototype. My frustration grew. The further I got, the more I started to realize I was working towards an inflexible solution with a fixed Radar chart and a fixed – predefined – number of ‘arms’.
The Radar Chart would be the most effective visualization type to visualize and benchmark personality test results but it seemed that Tableau was not suitable for creating flexible Radar Charts that interact easily with filters and parameters, so eventually I gave up. The best visualization I could make on my personality development program was the Bar Chart, as shown. I kept wondering, will there ever be a user-friendly way to create Radar Charts in Tableau?
