I'm a new tableau developer trying to develop a table based tableau report. I have a column in the table called "Status" which essentially contains 3 values "In progress", "Blocked" and "Completed". I want to colour code the cells of this column based on these text values. Did anyone face this problem? Kindly let me know how you solved it.

You can use the following steps to get it resolved

  1. Drag the Status to Color on the Marks card.

  2. Optimize the view format:

    • On the Marks card, select Square as the mark type.

    • Make the columns wider by pressing Ctrl + Right arrow (on a Mac, the combination is z"). Hold down Ctrl (or z) and continue pressing the Right arrow key until the headings for Segment are displayed in full:

    • Increase the mark size by pressing Ctrl + Shift + B (on a Mac: ñzB). Hold down Ctrl + Shift (ñz) and continue to press B until the squares are large enough.

  3. Drag Status to the Text on the Marks card

Using this you will get the desired visualization
