Idea: https://community.tableau.com/ideas/7021  - 12 upvotes, 100% upvotes

The more our end users depend on a Calendar (Date Parameter), they want to see it visually appealing and realistic.

Calendar should reveal, which days should have underlying data points.

Of course, this should be a top-up feature, and I want to retain all the existing calendar features.

If you also would like better calendars in Tableau, feel free to upvote the idea from Rahul Upadhye!

Have you ever run into issues with Tableau Server? Have you ever had to peruse a lot of Tableau server log files to figure out what may be causing the issue?

We've heard your feedback, and we are happy to announce the release of Logshark, an open-source, self-service tool to help you analyze Tableau log files using a product you already love, Tableau!

Some common use cases for Logshark include:
