Advance Your Tableau Analysis: Customizing Calculations
Have you been asked some tough analytics questions by your colleagues, and weren’t sure how to get there? Need a running sum? Percent of total within departments? Year-over-year growth split out by product line? Tableau's table calculation feature lets you do all of that and much more.
This session is geared towards Tableau users who wants to take their skills to the next level. We will teach you the concepts first without the distractions and then show you how to harness the power of table calculations. You will also learn the basics of the new Level of Detail (LOD) expression (Tableau 9) to solve some of the "hard" problems that traditionally required more steps in Tableau.
This session assumes that you are familiar with Tableau basics such as dimensions, measures, and simple calculated fields. It does not require prior knowledge of table calculations.
