lawrence.cripe struggled with the creation for a graph of total number of items active at a given time.
An idea from Alexandru Veruzi: he specified that TABCMD is no longer up to date with the new sub-projects feature in 10.5, which means that one cannot use sub-projects for the --project parameter for any of the commands.
Upvote this suggestion if you need it as well!
Please consider updating TABCMD so that sub-projects can be used as value for --project parameter or implement a new parameter similar to the --parent-project-path parameter that "Tableau Data Extract Command-Line Utility" has since v10.5.
