    How to sort by difference in last month from previous month, while showing 6M of data?

    Kirill Andriychuk

      I am trying to show sales by month for the past 6th months as well as MoM % increase.

      I always want the data to be sorted in descending order by latest month % growth, however, I am also trying to show 6 months of sales and % growth to give some trend perspective. I cannot seem to be able to figure out how to always sort by latest month % growth. (Or show top 10 sales regions)

       

      This article does not seem to have very clear instructions.

      I got lost at "Create a Tableau set for this new calculation and call it month sorter." Create a set with what?
