Show Dynamic Annotations with Parameter in Time Series Graph
Published: 15 Jun 2021 Last Modified Date: 15 Jun 2021
How to dynamically show annotations of the current month or the selected month in parameter.
The annotations are linked to a specific mark, thus the ability to dynamically change it with time is not currently built in Tableau Desktop.
As workarounds, the below two methods could dynamically display the annotation. 1. Highlight the current month (or the month specified by the parameter) on the dual-axis, and display the dynamic information below the sheet name.
2. Create multiple annotations in advance and display only the annotations for the current month (or the month specified by the parameter) on the dual-axis. (This is a time-consuming method).
Please check the attached workbook and video for details.
