Project Tracker

This visualization showcases Tableau as a powerful project management tool, and also shares a couple of cool ways to present your project data.

The project tracker shows a project timeline grouped by project owner and colored by project status. There’s also a ‘rolling’ today() calculation that helps visualize the current day and impending (hopefully) project completions. The tooltip is formatted in a way to be easily consumed, it also includes URL actions to view the landing page and email the project owner. The 'mailto:’ URL action is great for folks that build reports that are primarily consumed on mobile devices.

The recently delivered worksheet lists the projects that have been delivered within the last two weeks and whether or not they were completed on time. If your projects have budget, or leads, or other performance indicators tied to them this visualization becomes very powerful and popular in your team or organization.
