#MakeoverMonday 11/22/16 – Advanced Logging Edition

And it’s time – my first ever Makeover Monday.  I’ll admit, I’ve attempted to catch up in the past, but always lost steam.  I think the first data set might be related to sports and I struggle to focus on making something interesting.

Despite my follies, I’m proud to say that I’ve participated in this week’s Makeover Monday in honor of the special advanced logging that is taking place.  Along with submitting work with the hashtag on twitter, Tableau has asked for us to upload a copy of our log files and workbook.  Contained within the advanced log files are .PNGs that show analysis iterations.

I went into this Monday with the idea of doing a basic “best practices” version.  One that would mimic something I might create for ultimate exploration and zero data journalism.  I tried to stick with one element that I thought worked well and create the dashboard around it.

Looking at the other participants, I’m already thinking that my time heatmap could be improved.  My mind was stuck on the day numbers and quarters.  I should have switched to days of the week!  Irrespective – here it is:
