I feel that Tableau forum by default should advocate the benefits of attaching the sample workbook. This will encourage users to attach the sample workbooks by default. The default advertisement should be like
A. "...if you attach a workbook your chances of getting a quick and correct answer is 79% etc...
B. "...X % of questions were resolved when they had sample workbooks attached to it.." etc.
Those metrics would be incredible to have Sujay... but we can also start making assumptions just looking at the Crow's Nest (Crow's Nest ) for unanswered questions. Just look at all the items that are unanswered that do not have packaged workbooks with them and you can sort of see the trend. Most of those unanswered questions are those that do not have packaged workbooks with them.
I will say, though, the Crow's Nest doesn't seem to be updated with the latest discussion stats at the moment, but it's where I found this question in the list of discussions below the viz.
Patrick or Diego can likely answer this question exactly but I believe that data is updated nightly so it will not reflect replies right away.
In addition to encouraging to attach sample workbooks, one more thing is needed on this forum. All users should be educated to Mark the answer as 'Correct Answer'. This is necessary because people like us who want to help fellow boarders sometimes spend time on looking into questions or queries that are already resolved.
If more boarders get into the habit of marking 'Correct Answers' then a lot of time and efforts can be saved.
Thanks for posts.
I get around the issue of not knowing the Tableau version of a saved workbook by rename TWBX extension to ZIP, then edit contained TWB file with Notepad to reveal the version number:
<!-- build 9200.16.0511.1945 -->
Thanks, Loren. Yes, that's a common approach.
In fact, starting with V10.5, Tableau tells you what version the old workbook was. (Although Beta 2018.2 seems to have lost that, but it's still beta.)
Nonetheless, the point of that old post was to ask the requestor to be as helpful as possible.
