Dear Tableau Users and Developers,

 

I had a problem and I noticed it is not possible to fix.

Long explanation: https://community.tableau.com/message/640425?et=watches.email.thread#640425 

Short explanation: I wanted 3 columns Yesterday, last 7 days and last 30 days.

                              But Yesterday didn't show up in last 7 days or 30 days

                              And the last 7 days also not in the 30 days.

 

It's not possible because you will get data duplicates.

And that Tableau is preventing this is kind of a good thing, great even.

But it doesn't show me progress.

 

That's why I think it would be nice if the date filter option (yesterday, last n days/week, etc.)

can also be implemented as a dimension option. so you can create columns or rows with them.

 

I know it will be probably a lot of work, to create this.

But I thought lets just give it a shot.
