Most Talked About Thread

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

Aaron Mackey posted Hide Part of Tooltip With Sum of Count(Number of Records) where he was having some issues with the uber-tip tool tip showing information that he didn't want his end user to see (it was different than what the viz showed). Mark Fraser, kettan and Shawn Wallwork brought a couple of older threads into the thread which referenced uber-tips. Ultimately, it looks like an idea needed to be created for the solution to be solved.

 

 

(One of the) Top Viewed Threads

leo dec posted the following last November - selecting multiple values in parameter. Steve Martin provided a solution that worked for Leo by using a set. However, Seanna Miller had a similar question and continued the thread, as the set option didn't quite work for her. Pratik Bundela also is looking for a more dynamic solution which gives the end user more flexibility in what they want to select.
