Creating New Sheets

There are several ways to create new sheets in a workbook. Follow the steps below to create a worksheet, a dashboard, or a story. While you can create as many sheets in a workbook as you like, it is best to create a new workbook for conceptually different analyses.

Creating Worksheets

Create a new worksheet by doing one of the following:
  • Selecting Worksheet > New Worksheet
  • Click the New Worksheet tab at the bottom of the workbook.

  • Click the New Worksheet icon on the toolbar and then choose New Worksheet.
  • Press Ctrl + M on your keyboard.

Creating Dashboards

Create a new dashboard by doing one of the following:
  • Select Dashboard > New Dashboard.
  • Click the New Dashboard tab at the bottom of the workbook.
  • Click the New Worksheet icon on the toolbar and then choose New Dashboard.

Creating Stories

Create a new story by doing one of the following:
  • Select Story > New Story.
  • Right-click the sheet tab and choose New Story.
  • Click the New Worksheet icon on the toolbar and then choose New Story:

Tableau automatically generates sheet names. The first worksheet is named Sheet 1, the second worksheet is named Sheet 2, and so on. The same is true for dashboards (Dashboard 1, Dashboard 2, etc.) and stories (Story 1, Story 2, etc.) To rename a sheet, right-click the sheet tab and select Rename Sheet. Alternatively, double-click the name of the sheet on the sheet tab and type a new name.
