  • Issue#39: Tableau - A way to create a Tableau data dictionary in order to see the Field Names within a workbook and associated formulas

    Tableau does not have the ability to export the workbook logic and load the field names and formulas into other software, for example a program that manages metadata for a company/department to provide a data dictionary. If this can be implemented on future release then it would be helpful for developers to keep track on their Calculating fields and formulas.It will add the ability to provide a data dictionary or integrate Tableau into system like metadata management such as Informatica Metadata Manager is so that users will have a better understanding of how data is connected. As Tableau development of workbook dashboards becomes more complex with connecting to multiple data sources, joining multiple fields, creating numerous calculated fields and workbooks, there is a need for the following: 1.To see which data sources are used in which workbooks, dashboards, and worksheets.2.Understand the data lineage from source to workbook to dashboard to worksheet.3.Ability to vie

    I'm trying to create a parameter from a data source that is grouped by weeks (not days) until 9/1/15.  This is messing up my ability to create a functioning parameter, then filter for my sheet because Tableau isn't able to figure out if the number order correctly.  Is there a way to create a new date range that starts at 9/1/2015 so that my filters look normal and that  I can build off? example below:  As a result my filter numbers look weird:         Here's the formula I used to create the Calculated Field for Week ID:      left(str(datepart('year',[Date])*100+(datepart('week',[Date]))),4)+"-"+right(str(datepart('year',[Date])+(datepart('week',[Date]))),2)

  • Issue#50419: Tableau - Applying a filter to multiple data sources

    Hello, I have come across an issue which I need some help with. The attached sample workbook can be used to illustrate the situation. My original problem revolved around creating a running sum of orders which were undelivered. The goal behind the calculation was to add new orders as they are created and subtract them from the running sum as they are delivered. With the help of a contributor on this forum, I was able to put together a solution; however, I am running into an issue with the filters. To solve the original problem, I created a calendar in Excel and imported it as a data source. Then, I duplicated my data source which included all the orders and information about them, linked the order date and delivery date fields from the two data sources to the imported calendar and put together a running sum calculation using the imported calendar as the primary data source which worked perfectly.  The issue I am running into now is adding filters on top of the running sum calc

  • Issue#186596: Tableau - Use historical data to create dynamic target

    I hope I explain, what we are trying to accomplish, well enough. Using the Superstore Sample data for example, we want to take the historical sales data from 2011, and use those figures as a goal to measure 2012 against.  For example, in 2011, Furniture Sales totaled around $12.7M. So we'd like that to be our goal, and then if we filter the Product Sub-category, we'd like the target to change. Does anyone have a similar situation that could be used to help us accomplish this view? Thanks in advance!

    Some help with the following would be much appreciated. I have tried "show missing values" and the solution on Unable to Show Missing Values (Dates) when date level is switchable using parameter but both approaches do not work for my data sources. I have two data sets, one with daily values ("Time Period" dimension) and one with values for Mondays only ("Week Commencing" dimension). I would like to plot values from both data sets on a week-by-week basis so I have used DATETRUNC to change the daily values to weekly dates. A "End Date Selector" parameter filters the data to show data ending on a specific "week commencing" date. The data is also filtered to dimension values in the daily data set (i.e. "Colour"). Problem: A dimension value (i.e. Colour = Blue) in the daily data set is not present for an entire week (i.e. 29 Feb 2016 - 6 Mar 2016). When the End Date Selector is set to 29 Feb 2016 and the Colour filter to only Blue, then the graph shows the last week for which data

  • Issue#276716: Tableau - Data Blending Left Join Issue

    Hi All, We are currently developing a customized usage dashboard for our business users. We are blending data using multiple data sources and both data sources are connecting to PostgreSQL databases. In the second data source we are using custom SQL which basically pulls the users who are in Usage and Admin AD groups. All sites contains corresponding Usage and Admin AD groups accordingly. Our aim is to provide the users logged in with their sites usage data. For example, user X is only part of site A and when he logs in he should be viewing only site A's usage statistics and if user Y is part of site B and C, he should be viewing both sites B and C's usage statistics. For the security piece we are capturing user login information using GetUserName() function. But we have a issue here with the Site Name filter. When a user X logs in, he is able to see only his sites corresponding data getting filtered but the site name filter shows all sites within the environment. we want to

  • Issue#437561: Tableau - Tableau data sources - conformed dimensions

    I am using Tableau to connect to a data warehouse made up of several fact tables as star schema, mostly interconnected, and mostly using conformed dimensions.Does anyone know what is best practice for setting up the data sources in Tableau Desktop?  I do need to connect to the whole set of tables.I have been moderately successful using a mixture of joins and blends, but the approach has some problems.These are, particularly: having multiple copies of the same dimension but under different names, when joined to different fact tables in the same data source schema; e.g. Region connected to one fact table, and a duplicate called Region1 connected to another fact table.The second issue is to do with blends:finding appropriate linking dimensions, and not being able to use the COUNTD aggregation for a secondary source measure. A a few specific questions about best practice: 1. Is it possible to join a single dimension table to two fact tables in the same data source schema?

  • Issue#463875: Tableau - Filtering Across Data Sources (Global?)

    Hi all, I'm looking to have a filter apply across data sources, in an indirect manner.  Has anyone heard of a way to accomplish this?  Details below: My data model has multiple tables, which are associated via keys.  For the sake of simplicity, let's imagine we have three tables (A, B, and C) and they are all associated by the same key (the larger data model has more tables and more keys, so I'm hoping any solution can scale to that paradigm).As an assumption, we need to assume I cannot alter my data model in any way (I am stuck with these three tables - in reality, more like 8, but hey, this is an example ).I've created a workbook with multiple dashboards.  I'd like to apply a filter from a non-key field in Table A, and have it propagate through the key field to Tables B and C, such that the data in visuals built from Table B and C show only data based on the filter from Table A.Note that the field I filtered on from Table A is not a field in Table B or C
