Good morning, afternoon, and evening! It's the last week of June, and summer's in full tilt, here in Seattle. The summer is always a great time with lots of activities taking place, and the Tableau Community is no exception! Let's take a look --

 

Announcements

Did you watch the Tableau 10 Virtual User Group? If you missed it, you can still check it out here: Tableau 10 Virtual User Group on Livestream. It was a great event with a Pre-show hosted by three Tableau Ambassadors and User Group Leaders, Amber Smart, Christopher Scott, and emily.kund. The main event went into a deep dive of the Tableau 10 features with the Tableau Developers - so much goodness, coming! This was also the kick off of the Tableau Torch and the Tableau Torch Viz Contest!

 

The Tableau Torch Viz Contest is definitely something you'll want to partake in. There are 5 opportunities to win a ticket to TC in Austin and create a Tableau viz using Tableau 10.

Muhammad Khan asked how to create a Pie Chart with two Measures. khalid norat stuck with it, and was able to help Muhammad answer his question by creating a calculated field which helped find the unemployed and employed candidates. I love finding this conversations where it really shows two people fully engaged, working to solve a problem together

 

 

Most Viewed Thread

Allen Gapara had a question about Automatically Select a parent by selecting a child earlier this month. Ivan Young suggested using a parameter instead of using a calculation or LOD expression. He created the workbook in version 9.2 to solve Allen's issue, but when Allen didn't have that version - Ivan gave detailed instructions on how to accomplish it. What a great community!
