Hey

 

In Stephen Few's newsletter Displaying Missing Values and Incomplete Periods in Time Series he addresses the common challenge of "Determining how to display a current period that is incomplete".

 

A great solution provided by him is showing both the incomplete final period as well as a projected value.

 

Tableau allows to easily add a projected value to the graph, however, showing it along the available incomplete point (see graph below) require a workaround.

It would be great if Tableau would create an easy solution for this issue.

 

Thanks!
