Let’s continue our exploration of dates in our Deep Dive. In Part 6, we’re going to focus on how we can create rolling dates. A rolling date is taking a specific date, such as order date, and then adding a certain amount of days, months or...

Let’s continue on with our Deep Dive into Dates. This article, we’ll explore custom dates. The name admittedly is a bit of a misnomer and only really make sense if you understand date parts and date values. Make sure to catch up on this series...

We’re continuing our Deep Dive into Dates with an examination of the Exact Date value. Remember to catch up on the previous three articles where I introduced dates (discrete vs. continuous) and some key date functions. Let’s get started! Exactly What is Exact Date? In our first...

We’re continuing our Deep Dive into Dates with further exploration into date specific functions. In this article, we’ll cover DATEADD, DATEDIFF and DATETRUNC. My goal is not only to show you how to use them but to give you some real world examples of when they’d be...

In the first article on the Deep Dive on Dates, I introduced some of the basic concepts of dates. Specifically, we covered discrete vs. continuous dates, dart parts vs. date values and some basic date functions (DATEPART, YEAR, MONTH and DAY). In this article, we’ll...

Dates are one of the most confusing topics that come out of Tableau training. What is the difference between a continuous date and a discrete date? What is the difference between those and normal continuous and discrete fields? Why isn’t my date field showing up...

In last article in our Deep Dive on Sets, we will explore how we can use sets inside of a hierarchy. It adds dynamism to your hierarchies, particularly if you nest multiple computed sets into a single hierarchy. Let’s learn how to do it! Hierarchy Overview A...

We’ve created manual sets, and we’ve created computed sets. Now we are going to extend the functionality of our sets once again by using two sets to create a combined set. This allows us to create additional analysis to compare, contrast or even combine the...

In all of our previous examples of this Deep Dive, we’ve been adding our new sets to the Filters card. That’s filtering our view (as well as limiting the membership available in our filter control as we did in part two). What happens if we...

Computed sets use logic to dynamically update the membership of the set. This is the key distinction between constant sets and computed ones. Changes to the data will change the set itself as it re-computes what gets classified as IN the set and what gets...

Constant sets are sets that once created do not change. If the underlying data changes, the membership of the constant set does not change to reflect these differences. These are also known as manually created sets. In this part of our Deep Dive on sets,...

The idea behind a Deep Dive article series is to spend far more time and energy on mastering a topic than what would be possible inside a traditional learning environment. We’re going to dig really deep into sets over multiple articles with real world use...

Scenario: You’ve just purchased a new laptop with an amazing high resolution display. Woo hoo!  However, when you start up Tableau, something looks a bit fishy: Figure 1: Hmmmm … This seems to compound when you open a dashboard: Figure 2: YIKES!! When opening Dashboards, Tableau is scaling the...

In this brief video, I walk through the four steps to creating a parameter in Tableau: Create the parameter control Show the parameter control Use the parameter in a calculated field Use the calculated field in the view Follow along in the video to see how easy it is!...
