The plan is to start with a basic chart and show some variations (e.g. line chart with a reference band), so there will be many charts. I’ll have to cheat in some of them to keep them under the three minute mark, but I’m sure if a chart has 12 series people will not want to see me change the color of each of them.

]]>I think the main messages I took from the above video are probably the messages you want to focus on overall:

* Excel defaults aren’t very good

* With some basic editing that doesn’t take much time you can significantly improve them

Learning which edits to make of course requires learning some data viz and design principles, but as many have noted those can be learned over time. Examples help.

Can you post the list of graphs/videos you are thinking about making?

PS. I’m loving your book. I’ve read half of it already, jumping around to different topics that spark my interest. I’m very happy and impressed that all examples are in Excel. This week I studied your bullet chart how-to that you posted online. Very useful. Thanks for generously sharing. Obrigado.

]]>What you’ve been able to do in Excel reflects much of what I’ve been doing, albeit you’re way more advanced! Tableau doesn’t allow one to shape the data easily, and the pre-built visualizations are only “okay” by default, and manipulating them isn’t all that intuitive. For instance, the spacing on their cluster bar graphs is obnoxious, and I couldn’t figure out how to adjust it. It takes 2-3 clicks to do so in Excel.

]]>I’d really like you to write about the horizon chart from the book (on page 300) that uses both positive and negative values.

Thank you in advance,
