Rody Zakovich, Tableau Community Ambassador and data rockstar, loves dates with Tableau. This Think Data Thursday, we'll watch him share that love with the rest of us.
Dates play a crucial role in many visualizations, but working with dates in Tableau can present challenges. The good news is Tableau is extremely flexible and provides us with the tools to overcome most obstacles. This Think Data Thursday is about the various issues that can arise from working with dates, the methods to overcome them, and a basic overview of why Tableau treats dates the way it does. This session will cover some basic ideas (think - discrete vs continuous dates, and DATEPART vs DATETRUNC) to more advanced topics (like relative period to other date functions). We will also discuss DATE formatting tricks and some of the idiosyncrasies that go along with it.
Come prepared to learn more about dates and/or share any tips that you may have as well!
