Bins are like equal size containers which store values and fit in the bin size. Also we can describe bins as the group of set of data which is of equal size or interval so that results into a systematic distribution of data. Any discrete field data can be taken to create the bins in Tableau. Generally bins are created by using measures only, we can’t use Dimensions to create the bins in Tableau. These are very helpful for analyze the data because they gives a systematic data range and which can be used to discover the patterns and organize the information in a better way. One thing to note is that we can only create the bins from the relational databases and also we can’t use the bins in calculations. When we create bins it saves as a different field in tableau, because they contains the values in different form like String, Integer, Float, List or Range. For example if we want to make a visualization of sales against different age group like 20 to 70. So for that we can create bins of different age groups and do the analysis for sales according to age groups. Most of the times bins are used for creating the histograms in Tableau.
