Format Tableau Chart Title

This article will show you how to format the Tableau Chart Title with particle examples. To demonstrate these formatting chart title options in Tableau, we will use the data source we created earlier.

From the below screenshot, you can see we created a Column chart by dragging Country Dimension to Columns Shelf, the Sales Amount to the Row Shelf, and the Country dimension to Color Shelf.

Please visit Data Labels in Reports article to know the data source.
