One of the first kinds of visualizations you might want to make is a bar chart. Tableau makes creating a bar chart a matter of dragging and dropping.
First, decide which values you want to measure.
Let's try comparing how many awards versus nominations Beyoncé has received. To do this, drag the "Result 1" variable into the "Columns" box at the top of the screen, and drag "Measure Values" into the "Rows" box. The result should look like this:
Congrats! You now have a bar chart.
You can also make maps in Tableau. Take a look at this tutorial by Miriam Posner for more information on making maps.
