Happy Monday everyone and welcome to this week's Digest!
Much like Tracy last week, I begin this Digest with some news: this will be the last digest that I write as well. After three and a half years at Tableau and five years in Seattle, I am moving to Philadelphia this summer to be closer to friends and family, pursue my band, and continue along my career. I have loved my time at Tableau and am incredibly grateful to this wonderful community for welcoming me and letting me learn alongside you all. I'll be around for another month and hope to stop by this community on occasion so please feel free to reach out! :-)
With that having been said, let's start with one more "Today in History."
Today in 1939, The National Baseball Hall of Fame opened in Cooperstown, New York. The initial class included legends like Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, and Honus Wagner. Read more HERE.
Author's Note: David Ortiz included because he really should be a hall of famer once he's eligible and I will use any and all excuses to reference David Ortiz.
Tableau 10.3 was released two weeks ago! If you haven't tried it out, now is a perfect time. If you're in an enterprise environment, read all about how Tableau 10.3 engages the entire organization with these enterprise features.
Last week we had another Developer Office Hours on Editing and Formatting Text in Tableau. If you missed it, you can see the conversation and watch the event here: Ask us anything about text editing in Tableau.
I'd be remiss if I didn't recognize Tracy Rodgers for her tireless work for our community over the past few years. She has been an inspiring leader and I'm grateful for her direction and friendship. It's been a pleasure and on behalf of myself and our community, thank you so much for all you've done!

Last week Nina Royce posted about recreating a tablea similar to that previously created in Excel. The table involved joins and unions on multiple data sources then showing grand totals with a difference. Sherzodbek Ibragimov stepped in to help and Akhilesh Singh may have found a solution. See it all here: Working with 2 tables Help

Last week's most popular idea was created by Tableau Ambassador (and generally great person) Toby Erkson so you know it's good. He has requested the ability to Allow deleting a table without deleting dependents and filters. If you agree, vote it up!
