Happy Tuesday all - and hopefully you had a great long weekend if you're in the States! Here's what was going on last week:

 

 

Announcements

Last week we had our biggest turnout for a Think Data Thursday ever - over 240 people! Thank you to Craig Bloodworth, Joshua Milligan, Bora Beran and Bethany Lyons for hosting the TDT: LoD of the Rings - May 21, 2015. It was a great session - I think everyone learned something on the call! If you missed it, you can watch the recording found in the above link.

 

At the end of last week's TDT, the next one was also announced. Join us June 18th, for TDT: Getting the Most Out of Tableau Server on June 18th, 2015 with Paul Banoub, Toby Erkson, Mark Jackson and Jeff Strauss. Definitely a good one to check out!

 

Interested in learning "How to Excel Using Tableau"? Check out the Talk Data to Me webinar this Thursday at 10 AM PDT.

 

This is a heads up that in the near future the gaming/point structure of the Community will be changing. More to come next week.

Most Talked About Thread

**This is characterized by the number of responses in a thread
Ari Bibas asked Difficult (I guess..) : show total as a mere calculation of above rows where he was having an issue getting the correct total. Shine Pulikathara and Matt Lutton helped Ari with an example workbook. However, the solution wasn't as easy as they originally thought since Ari's workbook was using multiple data sources. Shine was able to provide a solution that used a running sum to get him close to the results.
