During today's user group, Divya showed an example of a viz that includes a calendar. At Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, we use calendars as parts of vizzes occasionally, so I'm attaching a sample workbook with dummy data so that others can use this. A couple of notes:
1. As with everything in Tableau, if there is no data, a date will not display. I've demonstrated this by removing 10/29/16 from the data set; you can see that it does not appear in the calendar but a blank space does.
2. To get around this, we have a complete calendar and left join to the data.
3. Depending on our data, we sometimes filter out Saturday and Sunday.
*If anyone knows a better way, I'd love to know it!
