So, if you are like me and somehow, happen to have a few hours with no specific task to do, you get itchy. Itchy to do something with tech. That’s what happened today. I had a few hours and someone recently asked to create some dummy data for a project. So, I said to myself, why don’t I create a Data Generator routine using Tableau Prep Builder?
I know I can look at a lot of online data generators that allow me to create custom data. The big issue is they don’t help me create a good story because there is no signal or an outlier in the data.
Well, worry not. In less than 5 minutes, you can create the dataset that you need with your own liking for your own industry.
So, what do you need
- Tableau Prep Builder (Download the .tfl file)
- Data Input File (Download excel here)
- Tableau Desktop (Download .twb here)
And watch the following video. In less than 5 minutes, you will have some nice data to play with.
