Office Hours, Contest Style!

on September 4, 2012

We're doing office hours again--political viz style! On Monday (9/10) at 9:30am PST (12:30pm EST), we will be online for an hour to answer your questions, give feedback or otherwise help you improve your contest submission (and a shot at the Iron Viz competition in San Diego!).

Here's how this will work:

We'll be online and watching the @tableau twitter handle. If you want to sit and chat with us, message us @tableau. We'll then Direct Message you a WebEx link (so be sure to be following @tableau!), and then you can show us your viz privately. It's first-come first-served, so if we're currently chatting with someone else, we'll put you on our next in line. Everyone gets 10 minutes.

Things you may want to ask:

  • General questions (e.g. Am I going in the right direction?)
  • I'd really like to do 'x', how can I do that?
  • How strong is my story?

So block out some time on your calendars. Again, Monday, 9/10 at 9:30am PST (12:30pm EST). If you can't make office hours, never fear! We've got some tips and videos we're putting together to help you tell the best data story possible. Look for another blog post for that later this week.


Therefore, masked some time in your calendar. Similarly, on September 10 (Monday) at 9:30 PST (U.S. Eastern time, 0:30). If you can not make office hours, do not worry! We've got some tips and videos, we will help you tell the best story possible. Take a look at another blog post later this week.
