Presentation mode is a Tableau mode you can use to tell stories with data. In this video, learn how to display a visualization in presentation mode.
- [Instructor] One way to make your Tableau visualizations easier to understand is by making them larger. You can either resize the vis within the Tableau program window or you can hide most of the user interface and display your visualizations in Presentation mode. In this movie I will show you how to activate Presentation mode. My sample file is 10_04 PresentationMode and that's a Tableau workbook you can find in the Chapter 10 folder of your Exercise Files collection. On the By Category worksheet, I have a tree map that breaks down sales by product category and then on the By Date sheet I have a line graph that shows sales by month. If I want to hide most of the user interface and focus just on the visualization, I can switch to Presentation mode. There are a couple of ways to do that. You can either go to the toolbar and click the Presentation mode button or, as the Tool Tip indicates, you can press F7. I'll go ahead and press the button since my mouse pointer is there and you see that I am now in Presentation mode. And all but a very few elements of the user interface are gone. You'll notice that the bottom that I have my sheet tabs, so I'm currently at By Date. If I click By Category, then I go to that sheet and of course I could go back. At the bottom right hand corner there are a number of controls that you can use. The ones that I'll focus on are the Next Sheet button, so if I click that I go to the next sheet. Then there's also the Previous Sheet button. Here there's Exit Fullscreen, which you can also access by pressing F11, and Exit Presentation Mode, which is done through either pressing the Escape key or pressing F7. I'll go ahead and press the Escape key to go back to the regular workbook view and continue my work.
