I have been creating some internal documentation at work for our new Tableau community who have been chomping at the bit to start working with it on some real projects.
One of the topics that comes up a lot is the concept of COMPUTE USING or scope and direction. I have created some PowerPoint slides internally and thought I would share them with you.
I relied heavily on the fantastic Tableau book written by Joshua Milligan titled Learning Tableau 10, Second Edition (see cover image below). I will be blogging a review of this book in the next few weeks.
So, here is Part 1 of my first Tableau Secrets post about Tableau Calculations and their scope and direction. I hope you find it as helpful as I did while creating the PowerPoint slides.
Part 2 will focus on the scope and directions options in detail.
