Three members achieved the "Questions for Breakfast" badge, meaning that at least 10 of their responses were marked as correct. Joey Minix, Tharashasank Davuluru, and Juracy Americo all have helped people get the answers to the questions that were needed. Hopefully, we'll continue to see them all in the community helping people out. On behalf of the community, thank you all!

 

 

Most Talked About Thread

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

mark schukas  was running into an issue where the calculated field he was placing on the color shelf was not being interpreted correctly by Tableau in Calculated Field on the Color marks card.  Tableau employee, Nicholas Hara explained that since the end user was replacing the data source or connecting to a new file that the color legend needed to be reapplied. Looks like the issue was most likely resolved using the Tableau Data Server. Mark, let us know if your answer is resolved by marking how your problem was solved!
