I hope everyone that visited Tableau Conference 2016 had a wonderful week of learning, connecting with other Tableau users, and of course celebrating #data16 . If you have pictures or stories to share about your experiences at Tableau Conference, please share in the Tableau Conference user group. We would love to see them. I've started a Pictures thread here - Pictures from TC 2016 to get things started.
Now that TC is complete and we are home, our team has plenty to catch up on. Did you learn a new skill and want to try out your own Jedi like skills, head over to Crow's Nest where we have a list of unanswered posts from your fellow community users. See if you can find one or two to answer and show off those newly learned skills.
Did you attend one of Jonathan Drummey and Matt Coles sessions related to VizAlerts at TC2016? Jonathan has posted videos and files from this session here - VizAlerts session at 2016 Tableau Conference #data16: the video and files . For you Tableau Server administrators, be sure to check this great tool out.

New community member Khalid Baker asked How Can We Use Up and Down Arrows for Specific Columns? . Ashish Chaudhari responded to request a sample workbook and once Khalid posted his sample, the community went to work to assist. Simon Runc created a detailed response with example calculations and even a small gif image showing how to create a calculation. The creativity of our community members to share their knowledge with each other is inspiring. Way to go Simon.
Another very popular thread this week was Jesse Narang's post Calculate total number of active people at end of every quarter that was answered by a newer member to our community, Sherzodbek Ibragimov Sherzodbek has already generated 2,483 points since joining the community last July.
