Tableau worksheets all start with the same tab color, but you can change that color to make them stand out. In this video, learn how to change a worksheet’s tab color.
- [Instructor] When you create a Tableau workbook, you want to bring your colleague's eye to the most important data. That means using some sort of visual cue to indicate importance. In this movie, I will show you how to highlight a worksheet tab by changing its color. My sample file is 03_04 TabColor and that's a workbook you can find in the chapter three folder of the exercise files collection. This workbook contains three worksheets and you can see their names at the bottom left. We have by region, bar chart, and bar chart two. If we look at them, so we're currently on by region. I'll click on bar chart and I see that I have a bar chart there. And bar chart two appears to be an exact copy. So if I want to call attention to it, perhaps to ask if it should be deleted, then I can change the tab color. So I'll right click the bar chart two sheet tab and then at the very bottom of the shortcut menu I'll point to color and here you see I have eight options. None, which is the default, and then blue, red, yellow, and the other colors you see there. So let's say that I want to highlight it in red. So I'll go over to the fly out here and click red. And you can see that the bar chart two sheet tab now has a red highlight. If I go to by region, then bar chart keeps the highlight. So it's kind of subtle. It doesn't overwhelm the design by changing the entire tab, but it does give you a visual indication. And that is how you change the tab color of a Tableau worksheet.
