The goal is to plot three data sets in one plot: (DATE1_GOOD, DATE1_BAD); (DATE2_GOOD, DATE2_BAD); (DATE3_GOOD, DATE3_BAD). Unfortunately, I'm getting all possible combinations: enter image description here

So now the task is to combine the three diagonal plots into one and delete the rest since they make no sense. I tried dragging the axes but the result is not what I'm looking for, I get: (DATE3_GOOD, DATE1_BAD); (DATE3_GOOD, DATE2_BAD); (DATE3_GOOD, DATE3_BAD): enter image description here I'm new to Tableau, is it even possible to do what I want?

EDIT: @spectre In order to do this, I have to make the plots transparent somehow. How can I do this? I was trying but I always end up with something like below when using floating option enter image description here and without floating enter image description here

What you can do is plot the 3 graphs in 3 different pages and then combine them in a Dashboard. That way you can get all 3 graphs in one place. Below I have made 4 different graphs in different sheets and then combined all in one interactive Dashboard.

The first graph

The second graph

The third graph

the fourth graph

all four graphs combined

  • $\begingroup$ @stolikp you do not need to make them transparent. Look @ my edited answer above. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ OK. Now I understand what you were talking about. These are 4 neighboring plots on 1 dashboard. I wanted 3 lines in 1 plot (with 1 pair of axes), so that the lines could be compared. Thank you for your effort. My problem is solved: stackoverflow.com/questions/68667207/… $\endgroup$
