When working with Tableau, it is very common for a data analyst to write the same calculated fields over and over again for various workbooks. This repetitive task is not only time-consuming but also increases the risk of writing inconsistent calculations. This can be especially true when working with a team of analysts who are working on collaborating projects. This solution attempts to fill that gap using functionality that is available natively in Tableau and 100% supported—no XML Hacks.
