Good morning and happy Monday from (sunny for now) Seattle! Hopefully, everyone had a relaxing weekend - I certainly did - 9.5 hours of sleep on Saturday night (amazing!). Here's a look into what's going on around the community:

William Wang, a new member to the community, asked a question about How to create pie chart on map that's broken up into different measures? With the help of Michael Hesser, the two of them worked closely to get the answer that William needed through the use of writing calculations and creating table calculations. Glad you got your question answered!
