Simon Runc received the "Questions for Breakfast" badge (25 correct answers) on January 9 - pretty quick for having only joined the Community back in November.


Two members joined the 10 correct answers (I Know Stuff!! badge) club - Tyler Blakeley and Tableau's own Dan Sanchez - thank you both!



Most Talked About Thread

**This is characterized by the numbers of responses in a thread

This week's thread was Patricio Panichelli's post about Two time series, one time axis. He provided a detailed description and workbook which prompted KK Molugu, kettan, ankit.narula and Jonathan Drummey to participate. After a few suggestions got him close, an explanation from Jonathan ultimately helped provide the "keys" to unlock the start of the "Tableau mental model."



Most Viewed Thread

This week's most viewed thread is the same as the most talked about - so the second most viewed thread is one posted by Chris McClellan in Data-based text message in dashboard. Chris wants to show specific text if there is null data - in which Tableau's Daniel Ong provides a calculation, as well as a formatting trick (Abhilash Ramanathan provides a workbook showing how it is done). However, it looks like Chris is still having a little trouble - hopefully, my recent post solved the issue!
